Justin D. Lehrman, 40, Goessel, hit a deer at 6:30 a.m. April 28 with a 1984 Chevrolet K10 owned by Tara A. Lehrman of the same address. The pickup remained drivable despite damage to its left front.

US-56/77 north of 270th Rd.

Rellena S. Crowe, 64, Herington, hit a deer at 8:37 p.m. May 1 with her 2006 Chevrolet HHR. The sport utility vehicle sustained disabling damage to its front and was towed. Vincent S. Sly, 52, of a different Herington address, was a passenger at the time.

US-56/77/K-150 roundabout

Kelly E. Koehn, 62, rural Galva, was taken by Marion ambulance to Ascension Via Christi St. Francis Hospital, Wichita, after a semi-trailer truck he was driving tipped onto its side at 9:17 a.m. May 3 while attempting to negotiate a roundabout near Marion.

Deputy Aaron Christner’s report blamed the accident on a shifting cargo of rock being hauled in the trailer of the semi, a 2017 Peterbilt owned by K&K Gravel Products of Galva.

The trailer lost its load and rolled with the truck onto its right side. They were towed.

Initial reports of a fire and entrapment proved inaccurate.
