Four women have been hospitalized after being involved in an injury accident early Sunday afternoon.
According to Deputy Tom Erickson of the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department, law enforcement officials at 1:40 p.m. responded to an accident in which two vehicles collided at the intersection of 175th Street and Four Corners Road. One vehicle, driven by an adult female and traveling eastbound on 175th Street, hit another traveling southbound on Four Corners. That car was carrying three adult females, Erickson said.
Both cars spun off the roadway and into a ditch. All four women were taken to Overland Park Regional Medical Center, where they remain with non-life-threatening injuries.
Erickson declined to discuss the cause of the accident. A complete police report was unavailable at presstime. Erickson said a report will be available within the next couple of days.
The accident was one of several reported throughout the Kansas City metro area Sunday as early morning fog gave way to scattered thunderstorms later in the day.  The storms knocked out power in Edgerton for several hours, according to reports from residents.
Road conditions Monday morning, however, were clear of any ice or snow that was expected to accumulate overnight.
Weather forecasts call for warmer weather over the next couple of days, with partly sunny conditions and a high of 53 on Tuesday. The rain is expected to return, however, on Friday, with highs in the mid-50s and lows in the mid-30s.
