Rollover Injures Teen

Rollover AccidentA Gardner teen was taken to Ellsworth County Medical Center Thursday afternoon after his involvement in a rollover wreck on Interstate 70 near the Sylvan Grove exit.

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, at 4:20 PM Thursday, a 1988 Honda Civic driven by 18-year-old Thomas E. Shavers of Gardner was eastbound on I-70 two miles east of the Wilson exit.

Shavers changed lanes due to a 2011 Chevy Camaro coming up behind to pass.

He overcorrected and struck the Camaro as it passed.

The Civic entered the median, struck an embankment and rolled with the car coming to rest on its top.

The driver and a passenger in the Camaro, 27-year-old Michael Soto of Irvine, California and 28-year-old Christine Rudy of Denver, Colorado, were not injured.

The KHP said all occupants were buckled up.
