By Katherine Wartell

A Westmoreland man was transported to the hospital after Riley County officers were called to the 15,000 block of Green Randolph Road in northern Riley County early Saturday morning for reports of a single-car accident.

Lt. Josh Kyle said that Skylar O’Shea, 20, had been driving his 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 eastbound on Green Randolph Road, about one-tenth of a mile from South Otter Creek Road, at about 5:30 a.m., when he left the roadway and struck the bank of the southern ditch.

O’Shea sustained a cut to his head and was transported to the hospital by Riley County officers.

Kyle said the accident is under investigation.
