FedEx : Two injured in head-on crash in Pott County

10/08/2015 | 11:13pm US/Eastern

Two people were injured Thursday morning in a head-on collision involving a FedEx van in Pottawatomie County, authorities said.

The crash was reported at 8:55 a.m. at 2355 Maple Hill Road -- a mile south of the town of St. Marys.

Kansas Highway Patrol Master Trooper Jeremy Harwood said the crash occurred when a 1997 Ford pickup truck that was pulling a horse trailer south on Maple Hill Road went left of center to avoid hitting a 2014 FedEx Dodge Ram that for an unknown reason was driving left of center.

Harwood said the Ford's truck driver reported that he thought the FedEx van was pulling over to the left to drop off a package, and that he was attempting to go around the van.

However, as the Ford truck went left of center to avoid a collision, the driver of the FedEx van corrected his vehicle and went back to the right, where he re-entered the northbound lane. The two vehicles then struck head-on in the northbound lane.

The driver of the FedEx van, identified as Jeffrey Lee Freeman, 52, of Topeka, was taken to Community Hospital in St. Marys, then was airlifted to Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center for treatment of what were described as disabling injuries.

The patrol's crash log said Freeman wasn't wearing a seat belt.

The driver of the Ford, identified as John C. Rookstool, 62, of Wamego, was reported injured and was taken to an area hospital by family members, Harwood said. Rookstool was wearing a seat belt, according to the patrol's crash log.

A horse was in the trailer the Ford was pulling, and Harwood said the animal was "pretty banged up." It wasn't immediately known whether the horse survived its injuries.

Neither vehicle had any additional occupants.
