One person was transported to a Topeka hospital with disabling injuries after a two-vehicle crash involving a semi-trailer shortly before 7 a.m. Thursday on US-75 highway north of Topeka, Jackson County Sheriff Tim Morse said.

The crash was reported around 6:55 a.m. on northbound US-75 highway and 190th Road, south of Holton in Jackson County.

Morse said a red passenger vehicle was westbound crossing US-75 at 190th when it was struck by a southbound semi. Both vehicles left the highway.

The semi landed on its side about 150 yards from the crash at the bottom of a ravine on the west side of the highway, Morse said.

The driver of the passenger vehicle was transported to a hospital, while the truck driver refused treatment.

Morse said the Kansas Highway Patrol will be investigating the crash.

The Potawatomi Tribal Police also assisted with the incident. Jackson County EMS and Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation Tribal Fire and EMS, and Hoyt and Mayetta Fire Departments responded to the scene.

Authorities said the semi was hauling groceries.

The right-hand lane was blocked for a time. Northbound traffic on US-75 was able to move past the crash in the left lane.
