A 22-year-old Wichita woman was among four people injured during a three-vehicle crash in Lyon County on Sunday, according to a Kansas Highway Patrol crash report.

Dakota Hamlin was driving a Chevrolet SUV south on K-99 just south of Emporia at about 1:30 p.m. Sunday when her vehicle was struck by a Ford pickup truck that had been rear-ended while waiting at the intersection of K-99 and Road 90, according to the crash log.

The crash happened about 2 miles north of Olpe. A 19-year-old Olpe woman was driving a 2007 Pontiac G6 when it rear-ended the stopped pickup, according to the report.

Hamlin, the driver of the Pontiac and the two occupants in the pickup were all taken to Newman Medical Center in Emporia following the crash, the report said.
