A Winfield woman remained hospitalized Monday afternoon as a result of a four-vehicle crash that occurred on the K-360 bypass in south Winfield Saturday evening.
Barbara Powell, 70, was the driver of a white 1999 Pontiac Bonneville involved in a head-on collision with a Toyota FJ Cruiser near the intersection of the bypass and Wheat Rd. Powell is in critical condition at Wesley Medical Center, according to a hospital spokesperson.
Kara Goff, 33, Winfield was the driver of the Toyota SUV. Her injuries were minor and she was not transported to the hospital. Erik Goff, 34, Winfield, was a passenger in that vehicle. The Goffs were not wearing seat belts.
He was transported to the hospital and later transferred to Wesley Medical Center. Erik Goff has since been released from the hospital.
Catrice Crawford, 21, Winfield, was the driver of a green 1996 Mercury four-door that was also involved in the accident. Crawford was transported to the hospital with injuries not considered life threatening.
Kalina Hill, 27, Winfield, and 10-month-old Kamdyn Nero, Winfield, were passengers in that vehicle and had minor injuries. All three in the Crawford vehicle were wearing safety restraints.
30-year-old Amalia Barron, Ark City, was driving a gold 2013 Honda Civic that was also involved in the crash. She reported minor injuries.
Information provided by those involved in the accident, and other witnesses, indicates the Crawford car was eastbound. It had stopped at the intersection to make a left turn onto Wheat Rd. The Goff vehicle was approaching in the westbound lane.
As the Crawford vehicle waited to turn it was approached from behind by Powell, in the Pontiac. The accident occurred when the Civic struck Powell’s vehicle and it collided with the Crawford vehicle.
That collision put Powell’s car in the oncoming lane where it collided with the Toyota SUV.
