A 15-year-old Eudora girl was taken to the hospital Monday night after a one-vehicle rollover accident east of Eudora. Sgt. Steve Lewis, a Douglas County Sheriff’s spokesman, said Britani Schrum was the passenger in a 1989 Chevrolet Suburban that was southbound at 10 p.m. in the 1400 block of East 2300 Road, which is gravel.

The driver, 17-year-old Michael Baxter of Eudora, told officers he was looking down at the radio and when he looked up the vehicle started to roll, Lewis said. Baxter was not injured. Schrum was taken to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, but she was no longer listed as a patient Tuesday, an LMH spokeswoman said. Lewis said both teenagers wore their seat belts.
