According to Russell Police Chief Dale Weimaster, Gene Miller of Russell was transported by ambulance to Russell Regional Hospital after being involved in two head-on collisions at around 8:45 PM Saturday. Miller's condition is unknown at this time.
The first crash occurred when Miller, driving a 2007 Saturn SUV, crossed the center line while traveling south on Front and collided with a 2004 Pontiac sedan driven by Bailey Becker of Russell that was northbound.
The jolt of the collision sent the Pontiac off the roadway, across the east ditch and into a chain-link fence.
The second crash happened when Stephanie Cross of Russell, driving a 2005 Toyota minivan northbound on Front, happened upon the scene and struck Miller's Saturn head-on as it had stalled in the roadway.
All three vehicles were towed from the scene.
Russell Police Officers, Russell County EMS, the Russell City Fire Rescue Unit, a Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper and a Russell County Sheriff's Deputy responded to the crash.
