4-car crash injures 5 on U.S. 75 near Beto Junction

A four-car crash July 28, 2023, on U.S. Highway 75 near Beto Junction sent four people to the hospital with varying severity of injuries. The Kansas Highway Patrol reported the accident happened about 2 p.m. last Friday at a location about one mile north of Interstate 35 on U.S. 75.

The report said Collin M. Dawdy, 21, of Park Hill, Kan., was northbound on U.S. 75 in a 2016 Nissan Rogue when the vehicle crossed the center line and hit three southbound vehicles.

Dawdy’s vehicle first sideswiped a 2016 F-150 Ford driven by Robert Griffin, 55, of Osage City, Kan., then collided head on with a 2019 Dodge Journey driven by Danyel Monaghan, 47, of Topeka, Kan. Dawdy’s vehicle bounded off of the Dodge Journey and then struck a 2016 Chevrolet Traverse driven by Crystal Foy, 47, Topeka, before coming to rest in the northbound lane.

Dawdy was reported to have serious injuries and was transported to Stormont Vail Hospital, Topeka. Other drivers or occupants with injuries included Griffin, who reported pain and was transported to the hospital; Monaghan, transported with suspected minor injuries, and a passenger in his vehicle, Sarah Collins, 31, Holton, Kan., had suspected injuries, (KHP did not report the conditions of five children in the car); and Foy, who was transported with suspected minor injuries; an adult passenger in Foy’s vehicle was uninjured and the conditions of two children in the car were not reported.
