One person was sent to the hospital Monday afternoon following a two-vehicle accident that occurred on U.S. 160 highway.

The Cowley County Sheriff’s Dept. reports that 31-year-old Kyle Westerman, of Winfield, was driving east on 160 when his 2003 gray Ford truck collided with a tan 2004 GMC Yukon driven by 55-year-old Scott Johnson, Winfield. Neither vehicle contained passengers.

The report indicated that Johnson was driving in front of Westerman and had slowed to make a turn. Westerman did not see that the Yukon was slowing down and struck it from behind.

Westerman was taken to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. He was treated and later released, according to a spokesperson. Johnson was evaluated at the scene and released to go home.

The accident happened just after 4 p.m. in the 15000 block of 160 east of Winfield.
