A Howard woman was hurt in a wreck in eastern Lyon County Monday.


The Lyon County Sheriff's Office says 57-year-old Kelly Hunter of Howard was traveling on Interstate 35 when she lost control of her SUV near the Lyon-Coffey county line and crashed a bit before 5:30 pm. The investigation shows Hunter hydroplaned in wet conditions and hit a guardrail.

Hunter was taken to Newman Regional Health for treatment. The hospital does not release patient conditions to the media.

Hunter was also ticketed for driving too fast for the prevailing conditions and for not using a seatbelt.
