The Emporia Gazette

A driver on cruise control rolled over three times on the Kansas Turnpike Thursday afternoon, leaving her with minor injuries.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reported Meghan Heskett, 19, of Leavenworth was driving north at 80 miles per hour shortly after 3 p.m. Her car drifted to the left about one mile from the Emporia interchange, then rolled as she corrected it.

Heskett was treated by first responders on the scene. No one else was in the car.
