Two teenagers from Hoisington were taken to Clara Barton Hospital in Hoisington after a rollover accident at 5:45 p.m. Monday in the 100 block of NE 20 Ave., or 2 miles east of Hoisington. Kansas Highway Patrol reports the driver of a 1994 Chevrolet S10 Blazer swerved to miss a deer and the vehicle went into the ditch where it overturned once.
The driver was Tyler Alexander Specht and his passenger was Cameron Alan Davis, both 15 years old. They were not wearing seat belts.
Sheriff Brian Bellendir at the Barton County Sheriff’s Office reports a Victoria man was injured Monday afternoon when the International truck he was driving blew a front tire and went off the 1800 block of NW 120 Ave. The truck driven by Winfred Nials, 43, overturned onto its side. Hoisington Emergency Medical Service treated him at the scene and transported him to Clara Barton Hospital. He was later transported to a Wichita Hospital. Galatia Fire Department and KHP also assisted at the accident scene.
A spokesman for Wesley Medical Center in Wichita said Nials was in fair condition Tuesday evening.
BSCO also responded to a rollover that occurred just before 5 p.m. Monday on NW 10 Ave. and NW 30 Road. Scott Larson Jr., 52, of Marshfield, Wis., was northbound in a 2013 Ford F-150 pickup that was pulling a 2006 Ford F-350 pickup. The vehicles were hitched together with a tow bar. As Larson drove up a hill, the rear vehicle swerved, causing the front vehicle to go into the ditch and overturn 3/4 times. The rear vehicle stayed on its wheels. Larson was treated at the scene by Great Bend EMS.
