Two people from Michigan were injured in an automobile accident on Sunday afternoon at the junction of U.S. Highways 56 and 83 in Haskell County.
Abdullah Alassairi, 79, of Mount Pleasant, Mich., was westbound in a Ford Focus on U.S. 56 at around 2 p.m., when he reached the junction and struck a 2012 Ford Mustang driven by 13-year-old Austin Weibe, Satanta, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.
The KHP reported that Alassairi failed to stop at a stop sign when he struck the side of Weibe’s vehicle. Weibe was turning left at the stop sign.
Both vehicles came to rest on the west side of the intersection. Alaissiri was uninjured, but his passengers, 73-year-old Amdami Madaniler and 46-year-old Arwa Alaseeri, also of Mount Pleasant, were injured and taken to Satanta District Hospital. They have since been released.
Wiebe and his passenger, 20-year-old Abram Enns-Peters of Montezuma, were uninjured.
Everyone involved in the accident was wearing a seat belt, according to the KHP.
