Man arrested after truck collision

By The Mercury

A Manhattan man injured in an accident on Tuesday was arrested after police discovered he drove on a suspended license and had several warrants in other jurisdictions.

Lt. Josh Kyle said Brian Archer, 37, 2700 Tabor Valley Rd., was arrested for driving while suspended, and is also being held at the Riley County Jail on an Allen County bond for a probation revocation warrant, and two Neosho County warrants for writing a worthless check and probation revocation. Archer was also cited for no proof of insurance.

Kyle said the accident occurred a little after 6 p.m. on Seth Child and Claflin roads. Richard Peterson, 72, Manhattan, was driving his 2003 Chevrolet Silverado southbound on Seth Child Road, when he made a left turn in front of Archer, driving a 1998 Ford F150 pick-up truck, who was driving northbound on Seth Child Road.

Riley County EMS transported Archer to Mercy Regional Health Center for neck and abdominal pain. Kyle said police arrested him after he was released from the hospital. He was held at the Riley County Jail on $3,843.83 bond.

He said Peterson was cited for failure to yield the right-of-way when turning left.
