  • Eight people, including six students, are recovering after an accident in northwest Kansas on a hail-covered road.
    The Kansas Highway Patrol says the two-vehicle accident happened Wednesday on Interstate 70 five miles east of Russell.
    The patrol says a sports utility vehicle carrying six students from Clifton-Clyde High School slid across a median when the driver, 29-year-old Laura Kay Stunkel of Palmer, lost control after driving over some hail.
    The SUV struck a vehicle driven by 53-year-old Shawnee resident Melinda Smith.
    All the injured were taken to a hospital in Russell. The extent of their injuries was not immediately available.
    Clifton-Clyde High School is located in Clifton, and has about 80 students.
