A woman from Wamego was taken to Wamego Health Center yesterday after icy roads caused her vehicle to roll over Monday morning.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, Beth M. Brunkow, 69, was heading east on Oregon Trail Rd. near Onaga Rd. in a 1999 GMC Jimmy when icy conditions caused her to lose control of the vehicle.
The vehicle then went into the ditch and rolled one time.
Brunkow’s injury was reported by authorities as minor.
Although accidents are not something that people want to think about, they do happen. Which is why it is important to make sure that when you are out on the road that you are driving safely.
Icy conditions can make driving 100 times harder, so it’s important to make sure that you drive slower, particularly on roads that you don’t know. If you hit black ice, you might not realize that you are driving on ice before it’s too late.
You also don’t know what the other drivers are doing as well. What would happen if their car slipped whilst they were driving next to? You might end up in a car accident.
If you are involved in an accident and it isn’t your fault, then this isn’t the end of the world, as you can easily hire an attorney like the ones found in OKC to help you with getting compensation.
Obviously, if you can avoid getting into a car accident then you should do that. So make sure you drive carefully, keep your ice out on other drivers etc…
Understandably, accidents will always happen, just like the accident that happened to Brunkow.
The wreck was reported at 11:23 a.m. at the 20500 block of Oregon Trail Rd..
