December 13, 2009

Eight people were taken to Kansas City area hospitals early Sunday morning, following a one-vehicle crash on Kansas Highway 10, about a half-mile east of the Church Street exit in Eudora.

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, the accident occurred about 4:20 a.m. when a 1999 Honda MPV CR-V that was heading west and left the road, crossed the center median and rolled over, landing on its top.

None of the eight occupants of the vehicle was wearing a seatbelt, according to a highway patrol report. According to initial reports from Douglas County emergency dispatchers, at least two people were ejected from the vehicle.

The driver, Jay N. Czervinske, 19, Olathe, and one passenger, Haley R. Schumann, 17, were taken to Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., according to the highway patrol, which did not list a hometown for Schumann. A nursing supervisor said she had no information about either of them.

The highway patrol reported that six other passengers were taken to Overland Park Regional Medical Center. Two of them — Angela Wolfe, 21, Kansas City, Kan., and Nathan P. Hansan, 21, Olathe — were treated and released, according to a nursing supervisor. She said Sean Canton, 21, Olathe, had been admitted to the intensive care unit, and Jonathan M. Burge, 19, Leawood, had been admitted to the hospital. Mackenzie R. Davis, 17, Overland Park, was being treated about 9:30 a.m. Sunday in the hospital emergency room. The nursing supervisor said she had no record for the sixth patient — Thadeusz S. Smith, 19, Olathe.
