An Allen woman suffered non-life threatening injuries early Monday morning when she was involved in a single-vehicle accident in northeast Lyon County.

According to the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office, at approximately 5:34 a.m. Monday, Lyon County deputies, Emporia-Lyon County EMS and the Miller Fire Department responded to the 1700 block of U.S. Highway 56 — about two and half miles east of Admire — for a report of a rollover accident.

It was determined, according to Lyon County Sheriff’s Deputy Brandon Early, that 35-year-old April M. Potter of Allen was eastbound on Highway 56 in a 2003 Ford F-150 pickup truck with her two children in the vehicle.

“She lost control due to the slick roadway conditions, causing the truck to overturn, landing on the roof in the north side ditch,” Early wrote.

Potter was transported to Newman Regional Health by Emporia- Lyon County Ambulance for non-life threatening injuries. Her two children were not injured and declined medical treatment.

All three occupants were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.
