A 78-year-old Eudora woman is in critical condition following a two-vehicle crash along Kansas Highway 10.

Deputies from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department responded to the accident at the intersection of Kansas Highway 10 and Noria Road at about 11:45 a.m., according to Lt. Steve Lewis, a sheriff’s office spokesman.

Lewis said a westbound Mazda, driven by 19-year-old Precious Jacob, of Lawrence, struck a Dodge Caravan as it turned north from the highway onto Noria Road. Patricia Smith was sitting in the front seat of the Caravan and was airlifted to Overland Park Regional Medical Center.

Chris Hamele, a spokesperson for Overland Park Regional, said Monday evening that Smith is in critical but stable condition.

The driver of the caravan, Ronnie Smith, 76, of Eudora, was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, where he was treated and released. Jacob was treated and released at the scene of the accident.
