Driver ejected from rear window of vehicle in crash

Life took a dangerous turn for Ethan W. Campbell, 27, Newton, when he was ejected from the rear window of his vehicle this past week after being rear-ended by a semi on K-15 near 130th Rd.

Campbell was southbound, turning into a driveway in his 1993 Chevrolet C1500 at 3:32 p.m. Friday when a 2015 Freightliner driven by Martin K. Melton, 54, Grain Valley, Missouri, hit the truck.

Campbellā€™s vehicle went into a ditch to the west, while the semi, owned by Midwest Express, Lenexa, continued south several hundred feet before going into the same ditch and through a fence.

Both vehicles had to be towed by Auto House Towing, Galva.
