A collision Thursday morning between a semi and a Ford Mustang sent the driver of the semi to the hospital with minor injuries, according to a statement released earlier today by Liberal Police Capt. Pat McClurg.

“On Thursday, at about 8:58 a.m., officers responded to the intersection of Eighth Street and Lincoln Avenue for a report of an injury accident,” McClurg noted. “Responding officers found that a semi tractor trailer had struck a Ford Mustang.

“Investigating officers found that the blue 2013 Volvo semi tractor and trailer was traveling west on 8th Street,” he continued. “The semi ran the stop sign at Lincoln Avenue and struck a black 2004 Ford Mustang that was traveling north on Lincoln Avenue.”

Ironically, it was the driver of the semi that was injured, according to McClurg.

“The 26-year-old male driver of the semi was transported to Southwest Medical Center by Seward County EMS with minor injuries,” he noted, while adding the 43-year-old man driving the Mustang was not injured.

“Both vehicles received extensive damage and were towed from the scene,” McClurg added. “The driver of the semi was cited for running a stop sign.”
