8-8-14 Car vs Semi Crash 1A Friday afternoon car versus semitruck crash just south of Russell at the Interstate 70/Highway 281 interchange destroyed the front end of a passenger car, but no injuries were reported.

The semi's trailer received minor damage.

According to the Russell County Sheriff's Office, at 2:20 PM Friday, dispatch received several 911 calls reporting an accident at the eastbound exit ramp.

The truck involved was a 2004 Kenworth driven by Samuel Maupin of Russell. The car involved was a 2011 Subaru driven by Bekhzod Ashurov of Overland Park.

The responding Sheriff's Deputy issued Ashurov a citation for failure to yield at a stop sign, which caused the crash when he failed to stop before entering the highway and struck the right side of the semi's trailer.
