There were no serious injuries Thursday when two vehicles collided in downtown Emporia.

At about 1:25 p.m., scanner traffic indicated an injury accident at the intersection of Eighth Avenue and Merchant Street. The crash involved two SUVs, one of which sustained moderate front-end damage while the other had only some minor damage on the driver's side.

Each driver had one passenger in the vehicle at the time of the wreck, but none of the four people involved required emergency transport.

We will have more information when it becomes available.

You should get out more.


I have never lived in a town that had so many accidents in the downtown as Emporia does. I suppose that runs up the cost of auto insurance too. It should really be looked at as to why this is so frequent.
