Two-car accident on Kimball and College

By Katherine Wartell

Riley County officers responded to a two-car accident at the intersection of Kimball and College avenues at approximately 1 p.m. Wednesday that involved heavy damage to the vehicles, but officials said no one was hurt.

Lt. Josh Kyle said that Rachel Jack, 25, Manhattan, was driving her 2001 Nissan Altima eastbound on Kimball Avenue, when she entered the intersection during a yellow light and was struck by a 2006 Ford F-150 pick-up truck driven by Roylonn Boling, 25, Manhattan.

Kyle said Boling had been turning left onto College Avenue and failed to yield at the light to Jack. He said the force of the impact sent Boling’s truck onto its side and resulted in heavy damage to vehicles, but, he said, neither of the drivers were transported for any injuries.

Kyle said officers cited Boling for failure to yield the right-of-way at a yellow light and cited Jack for no proof of liability insurance.
