A rollover crash on I-35 leaves two people injured, including a four year old who was ejected from a vehicle.

KFDI's George Lawson reports that the crash happened around 11:00 a.m. in the northbound lanes of the turnpike north of the 47th St. S. junction.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reports a rear passenger side tire blewout. The driver overcorrected and went into the right ditch, then rolled over. 

The four year old had serious injuries after being ejected. He was not wearing a seatbelt. A 52-year-old man had less serious injuries.
