The collision occurred in the early afternoon, Friday, March 10. According to the highway patrol report, while driving a 2007 Honda southbound on K-15, Koehn left the roadway on the right side briefly, then over-corrected to the left, entered into a skid and went into the northbound lane.

A 2016 Ford Escape was heading northbound. The report said the vehicle attempted to avoid Koehn, leaving the roadway to the right, and both vehicles collided in the road’s east ditch. The crash occurred a quarter-mile south of the K-15 intersection with NW 60th Street.

Koehn was wearing her seatbelt. The driver of the Ford Escape was transported to Newton Medical Center with possible injuries.
