Six people were injured on Saturday afternoon when a car collided with a pickup truck, overturning both vehicles on a rural road northwest of Bethany.

The driver of the pickup, 21-year old Rachel Spatz of Bethany, was taken to Harrison County Community Hospital in Bethany, then flown by helicopter to North Kansas City Hospital. Her injuries were described as SERIOUS by the Highway Patrol.

A passenger in the pickup, 24 year old Cody York of Panora, Iowa, refused treatment at the scene for minor injuries.

A passenger in the car, 16-year old Laura Fountain of Gilman City, was taken to the Bethany hospital with MODERATE injuries. The driver of the car, 21-year old Sarah Fountain of Gilman City, and two passengers, 15 year old Ashley Tucker of Gilman City and 19 year old Clint Lewis of New Hampton, all were taken to the hospital in Bethany with minor injuries.

The accident was eight miles northwest of Bethany on Harrison County Route W.

The Patrol said the Fountain car was northbound on W, attempting to pass another car at a hillcrest, when the left front of the vehicle driven by Fountain hit the left rear of the southbound pickup driven by Spatz.

The Patrol said the car went off the road and overturned once, coming to rest on its top. The pickup went off the road, rotated 1/2 turn, and overturned once, coming to rest on its top.

Both vehicles were extensively damaged. The Patrol said Rachel Spatz, Laura Fountain, and Ashley Tucker were NOT wearing seat belts. The other three people injured were wearing safety devices.
