Driver Falls Asleep, Crashes

KSAL Staff - August 30, 2016 10:47 am

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a central Kansas police chief was injured after an unoccupied police car struck him.

An Ellsworth man was hurt in a single vehicle crash in rural Saline County early Tuesday morning.

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, 28-year-old Cory Hill was driving a Ford F 250 pickup truck, headed west on K140 Highway. He fell asleep, went off the road, and through a creek embankment area.

Hill, who was buckled up, was transported by a private vehicle to the hospital in Ellsworth.

The crash happened at 6:55 Tuesday morning, a quarter mile east of Reece Road in Saline County.
