Injury accident on Anderson Avenue

By Katherine Wartell

A Junction City woman was hospitalized after she drove her car straight through a garage and into the backyard of a residence on Wildwood Lane late Sunday.

Capt. Kurt Moldrup said Tabatha Kurtenbach, 27, was driving her 2007 Honda Accord westbound in the 2300 block of Anderson Avenue and failed to negotiate the curve near Wildwood Lane, because she was speaking on her cell phone.

He said she drove straight into the garage of the residence at 2300 Wildwood Lane. Fire officials said the garage was determined to be structurally unsound.

Riley County EMS transported Kurtenbach for minor injuries. Moldrup said the case is still under investigation and no citations have been issued yet.
