These accident reports were released this past week by law enforcement agencies:

A Newton woman escaped injury when a car she was driving rolled into a ditch at 3:59 p.m. June 4 after hitting the side of a protruding farm implement driven by a 15-year-old.

Kylie Dillon, 39, was northbound on Sunflower Rd. in a 2017 Buick Envision owned by Susan Swan of North Newton.

Will Alleven, 15, who lives nearby, was southbound in a 1991 John Deere implement, attempting to turn left into a field owned by implement owner Donald Hett.

The driver’s side of the Buick hit a protruding tire of the implement, veered into a ditch and through a fence line, coming to rest on its top in trees and underbrush. The car suffered extensive damage, but Dillon, who was wearing a seatbelt, escaped without injury.
