No injuries reported in semi-truck, passenger van collision on U.S. 75

The Osage County Sheriff’s Office reported that an accident between a semi-truck and a passenger vehicle on U.S. Highway 75 resulted in no injuries yesterday. Numerous local agencies responded to the 911 calls that came in around 4:34 p.m. Nov. 30, 2020, about a possible injury accident at U.S. 75 and 217th Street, north of Lyndon.

In a press release issued last night, the sheriff’s office said that upon deputies’ arrival at the scene, it was discovered a 2007 Peterbilt semi-tractor driven by Charles Gerdes, of Auburn, Neb., had struck a 2012 Dodge Grand Caravan driven by Robert Stutzman, of Lyndon, after Stutzman had made an improper turn. There were no injuries, but due to the nature of the accident, Osage County EMS was requested to evaluate the occupants. No other details about the accident were available, and the sheriff’s office continues to investigate the accident.

In addition to Osage County deputies, a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper, Osage County fire districts No. 5 (Lyndon-Vassar) and No. 1 (Carbondale), and Osage County EMS responded to the accident scene.

The press release also offered a reminder the sheriff’s office certified car seat inspectors can assist anyone who has questions or concerns about child restraints or car seat installations. For more information, call the sheriff’s office at 785-828-3121.
