According to law enforcement reports released Friday:


60th Rd. east of Quail Creek Rd.

A 15-year-old rural Burns girl was taken to St. Luke Hospital after she drove a pickup into a ditch, overcorrected, and caused it to roll over at 10:45 a.m. Dec. 31.

Peabody firefighters extricated victim Taylor Wallace, who was driving a 1996 Ford F250 owned by Gregory Ballew of the same rural Burns address.

The truck sustained extensive damage and was towed. A mailbox and metal fencing owned by Dennis Wilson of rural Peabody also were damaged.

Deputy Mike Ottensmeier’s report said Taylor had complied with restrictions of her farm driver’s license but blamed the accident on inattentive driving.

US-50 east of Yarrow Rd.

Sherilyn Patrum, 43, Overland Park, hit a deer with her 2012 Hondo Civic at 1:13 p.m. Dec. 24. The Honda had to be towed.

K-15 at 340th Rd.

No injuries were reported when one car rear-ended another that had slowed to turn at 3:20 p.m. Dec. 31.

Dana Wedel, 43, Portland, Oregon, had slowed a 2006 Ford Fusion to turn west onto 340th Rd. Five-year-old Cy Wedel of the same address was a passenger.

Kyle Riffel, 18, rural Lincolnville, who was behind her vehicle in a 2007 Pontiac Grand Am, did not slow down in time to avoid a collision, according to deputy Derek Calvert’s report.

Neither the more extensively damaged Ford, owned by Larry Wedel of rural Tampa, nor the less-extensively damaged Pontiac, owned by Beth Gaines of Westmoreland, had to be towed.
