(ATCHISON COUNTY, Kan.)  A man and woman from Atchison, Kansas were sent to the hospital after a three-vehicle accident Thursday evening.

It happened a little before 8 p.m. on Highway 59 about eight miles south of Atchison.

The two were in an S-10 pick-up southbound on Hwy. 59 when they came upon a no-passing zone.

"The small S-10 pick-up was in front of the camper, trying to make a left turn," said Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie. "The semi proceeded around both those vehicles. When the S-10 vehicle pulled out into the intersection, the semi struck him."

Laurie said it was a non-passing zone.

He said the injuries were non-life threatening.

The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
