Russell County Sheriff's Officers, Russell County EMS and the Russell City Fire Rescue Unit were dispatched Friday at about 12:45 PM to a single-vehicle wreck just past the top of the I-70 onramp at mile marker 184. The Kansas Highway Patrol also responded.
According to Russell City Fire Chief Shane Preston, the SUV was entering eastbound I-70 on the ramp when it hydroplaned, slid into the south ditch, went through a fence and came to a stop against a tree row facing west.
Information regarding the identities of the vehicle's occupants was not available at the scene. Again, no major injuries were reported.
