A three-vehicle accident sent two people to area hospitals Tuesday night.

The accident occurred about 5:45 p.m. on U.S. Highway 24-40 near County Road 1 about a half-mile south of Tonganoxie.

Martin Reilly, 14, Tonganoxie, was driving a 1992 Mercury south on U.S. Highway 24-40 when he went left of center. His vehicle struck a 2012 Ford Fusion driven by Sarah Kay Henricks, 35, Tonganoxie, head on, according to Kansas Highway Patrol reports.

Richard Wise, 22, De Soto, also was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Impala north on U.S. 24-40 behind Henricks and also struck her vehicle.

Henricks was taken to Kansas University Hospital. A hospital official there said Friday that she was in serious condition.

Reilly was taken to Overland Park Regional Medical Center.

All three were wearing seat belts, according to reports.
