Turnpike trooper wrecks trying to reach crash, no injuries reported with either wreck

A report of a possible injury accident on the Kansas Turnpike near the Admire-Council Grove exit is no longer being investigated as leading to injuries.

The Turnpike Authority says one vehicle went off the highway at milepost 152 northbound, roughly five miles northeast of the Admire-Council Grove exit, with the wreck discovered around 6:15 am. A Turnpike trooper then crashed at milepost 129, or two miles outside the Emporia exit, while trying to reach the wreck in northeast Lyon County.

The trooper, who crashed into the center median, was unhurt. His name has not been released.

Authorities have not released information on the accident northeast of the Admire exit.
