Multiple emergency response agencies have rushed to the scene of a one car motor vehicle accident on Highway 69 in Dodge City.

The location is between the Jet Pep and Interstate 65.

The vehicle itself is 150 feet to the north of Highway 69 and the County Road 565 intersection. It has come to rest in a marshy waste area.

Personnel from Dodge City Fire & Rescue were the first to arrive on the scene.

Dodge City Fire Chief Matt Weaver along with a deputy from the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office and a medical team from Cullman Emergency Medical Services have waded through waist deep underbrush to reach the vehicle and its single senior female driver.

The occupant appears physically uninjured, but that is unconfirmed. This super senior is being escorted by rapid responders out of the swamp at this time.

Traffic disruption was evident along Highway 69; the westbound lane blocked with emergency vehicles. Motorists should use caution through this area until this incident clears the roadway. It is passable with yielding and prudence.

It appears the driver inadvertently overshot the 3-way intersection rolling across 69 and then plunging off the road to its final stopping point in the swamp.

Chief Weaver believes the driver encountered a medical issue that contributed to her wayward path.

We will have more information on the woman’s medical condition when/if it becomes available.

The second wreck involves two pickup trucks (one pulling a John Deer tractor). This collision occurred just up the highway at the northbound exit intersection of Interstate 65 and Highway 69 (Exit 299).

No injuries to occupants have occurred. Significant body and trailer damage are apparent. Plus, this incident contributes to the general sense of chaos and turbulence in this geographic area.

Dodge City Fire & Rescue Chief Matt Weaver was a busy man this afternoon.

He single-handedly worked two motor vehicle accidents simultaneously of Interstate 65 along Highway 69.

In this interview, the Chief discusses both wrecks and delves into the alleged ‘curse’ surrounding this portion of the roadway in Dodge City:
