A Roxbury teen has been cited for the hit-and-run incident Monday afternoon in south Salina.

According to Salina Police Captain Paul Forrester, Zane Scott, 16, of Roxbury, was identified as the driver of the pickup that left the scene of the accident at West Magnolia Road and South Ninth Street at 1:10 p.m. Monday.

A 2004 Peterbilt cement truck owned by Concrete Supply of Topeka was eastbound on West Magnolia Road at 1:10 p.m. Monday and had the green light at the South Ninth Street intersection. A pickup driven by Scott was westbound at the intersection and had a flashing yellow left turn signal. The pickup failed to yield the right-of-way to the cement truck and turned in front of it, Forrester explained. The cement truck struck the pickup, causing damage to the rear passenger side of the bed, bumper and light fixture area, he reported.

UPDATE: Bridge repair in McPherson County to begin Wednesday

UPDATE: KDOT has updated the information concerning this project. It is now scheduled to begin on Wednesday and traffic will move through one 13-foot lane in each direction.

The Kansas Department of Transportation is scheduled to begin a twin bridge repair of the northbound and southbound bridges located on Kansas Highway 61 (K-61) over Blaze Fork Creek in McPherson County on Wednesday.

The bridges are located approximately one-half mile south of the K-61/Comanche Road intersection, just south of Groveland.

PCI Roads, LLC of Saint Michael, Minn., is the prime contractor for this $314,000 project. The contractor has scheduled this project to be completed by August, weather permitting.

KDOT urges all motorists to be alert and obey the warning signs when approaching and driving through a work zone.
