By The Mercury

A Topeka man was life-flighted after sustaining injuries in a pile-up accident that occurred near the 100 block of Tuttle Creek Boulevard Saturday at about 11 a.m.

Lt. Josh Kyle said that Jerome Little, 60, driving a 1995 Lincoln Mark VII, was driving south on Tuttle Creek Boulevard, approaching Leavenworth Street, when he struck the back of a stopped 2003 Hyundai Sonata driven by Abdelmalik Hussein, 47, Kansas City. Kyle said the force of the collision caused Hussein’s car to strike the back of the 2004 Infiniti I35 driven by David Stanley, 47, Kansas City, Mo., who was stopped in front of him.

Kyle said Little’s car was on fire when officers arrived on the scene and that Little had already been carried away from his car by several people. He said Little was conscious but unable to move his legs and that Riley County EMS transported him to Mercy Regional Health Center before he was life-flighted to Wichita.

Kyle said Hussein and Stanley were uninjured.
