Two were injured in a Monday afternoon accident on state highway K-61 in southwest McPherson County.

According to Kansas Highway Patrol accident reports, a 2013 Dodge Charger driven by Mattison Carey, 25, of Hutchinson, was southbound on K-61 when a 2015 Lincoln MKX driven by Karol Elliott, 62, of Great Bend, failed to stop at the stop sign on Commanche Road and pulled out onto K-61, striking Carey's vehicle.

Both vehicles came to a stop in the median. Elliott was transported by Eagle Med to Via Christy Hospital St. Francis. Carey was transported to Hutchinson Regional Medical Center.

The Highway Patrol says both drivers were properly restrained.
