Emergency crews from Lenexa and Olathe were called to respond on a reported rollover injury accident on westbound Kansas Highway 10 just to the east of Cedar Creek Parkway, minutes after 10 a.m. Monday morning. Lenexa Police arrived on the scene and confirmed there is one vehicle with extensive damage in the center median. Police say the accident involved a car and a semi truck.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says, 27-year-old, Richard Treas III, of Clearview City, Kansas was driving eastbound on K-10. He was driving a 1990 Ford Escort, in the right lane, when he was overtaken (passed) by a semi truck pulling a trailer, traveling in the left lane. That truck was driven by 42-year-old, Katherine Reeder of Drexel, Missouri. Reeder attempted to change lanes from the left lane to the right lane, when her semi truck struck Treas'. Treas' vehicle began a counter-clockwise rotation, entered the grassy median and overturned, with the vehicle coming to rest on its wheels, according to the accident report.

Injuries sustained by Richard Treas III were said to be serious but, non life threatening. He was transported to an area hospital for further treatment. Katherine Reeder was not injured. Both drivers were the only occupants of their vehicles and were wearing their seat belts at the time of the accident.

Lenexa Police also received a report of a dog running in the center median of K-10. It is not known if that dog was involved in the accident.
