1 injured in rollover accident

By The Mercury

RCPD reported an injury accident occurred on Oct. 3 at approximately 6:50 p.m.

Lt. Josh Kyle said Kenneth Upton, 35, 3720 N. Seth Child Road, was driving southbound on McDowell Creek Road when his vehicle left the road in the 4800 block. The 1990 Dodge Ram pickup truck struck a wire fence and tree, rolling over before coming to a stop.

Geary County EMS responded and transported Upton to Geary Community Hospital to be treated for a head wound. Kyle said the accident happened in southern Riley County but Geary County EMS was closer to the accident and therefore responded.

Kyle said the initial report indicates alcohol and speed might have been factors in the accident. He said it is under investigation.
