Leavenworth County Sheriff
A 17-year-old Tonganoxie girl was released Tuesday from the Kansas University Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan., following an accident early Saturday morning. Amy Galyean was traveling south on Pleasant Street about 1 a.m. when she lost control of her vehicle and struck utility poles at the southwest corner of Sixth and Pleasant streets. Her vehicle came to rest in the front yard of a house in the 600 block of Pleasant. Galyean then reversed at a high rate of speed back onto Pleasant Street. She lost control again, spun around, hit a curb and struck a large tree with the driver's side of the vehicle. She was partially ejected and hit the tree with her head and left shoulder. Galyean was taken by LifeFlight helicopter to KU Medical Center, sheriff's reports said.
A vehicle driven by Cindy Stark, 23, Basehor, attempted to turn left from Kansas Highway 32 onto County Road 1 about 4:15 p.m. Sunday. Stark's vehicle was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by Penny Beesley, 18, Linwood. Beesley, Stark and passenger Jackie Stark had possible injuries but refused to be transported. Megan Arthur, 7, Pleasant Hill, Mo., was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital where she was treated and released. Damages to each vehicle were less that $500 damage, sheriff's reports said.
