Nortonville woman killed in two car accident

NORTONVILLE, Kan. (AP) — A northeast Kansas woman has died and several people were taken to a hospital with injuries after a two-car crash just south of Nortonville.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 71-year-old Don Schuler of Nortonville was southbound on Osage Road at 4:30 p.m. Sunday when he failed to yield at a stop sign at Kansas Highway 4 and collided with a northbound Buick Park Avenue driven by 15-year-old Alyissa Berglund of Atchison.

A passenger in Schuler’s car, 71-year-old Margaret Schuler, was killed in the collision. Don Schuler, Berglund and five passengers in her car — including three between the ages of 1 and 9 — were taken to a Topeka hospital, where three of Berglund’s passengers remained hospitalized Sunday night.
