Sheriff’s officials in Guthrie County reported late this week that two sisters from Guthrie Center escaped serious injury following a rollover accident late last week. Authorities say 15-year old Jeanna Lewis and her 18-year old sister Jessica were on their way to school, when Jeanna lost control of the car she was driving, about two-miles southwest of Guthrie Center. The accident happened at around 8:40-a.m. Thursday, October 20th, as the girls were headed north on 255th Street. As the 1992 Buick LeSabre entered a curve, it slid sideways before rolling into the east ditch and landing on its roof. 

Both teens were transported to the Guthrie County Hospital, for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Damage to the car was estimated at $2,000. Officials say Jeanna Lewis received a citation for Failure to Maintain Control
