RILEY COUNTY — One person was injured in an accident just before 3p.m. Monday in Riley County.
The Kansas Highway Patrol reported a 2015 school bus driven by Laura P. Kumle, 36, Manhattan, was westbound on Walters Drive. The driver failed to yield to the right of way by driving across the intersection of Walters Drive and U.S. 24.
A northbound 2000 Peterbilt semi grain hauler driven by Delbert L. Henson, 45, Beluve, steered right and applied the breaks to avoid colliding with the bus.
The truck traveled into the ditch and the driver attempted to correct back onto the paved roadway. In the process the truck flipped onto its right side and came to rest in the East ditch.
Henson was transported to the hospital in Manhattan.
Kumle was not injured. The KHP did not report the number of students on the bus. Both drivers were properly restrained at the time of the accident, according to the KHP.
