A Salina man was killed in a rollover accident southwest of Salina Thursday evening.

The Saline County Sheriff Glen Kochanowski tells KSAL News that 33-year-old David Erik Spencer was pronounced dead at the scene from head injuries.
The Sheriff added that alcohol contributed to the crash.
Deputies say Spencer was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown out of the 1972 Chevy Silverado. Witnesses told deputies they saw a passenger leave the area on foot.

The Kansas Highway Patrol assisted in the search with a unit in the air.
Ratsakhy was not injured in the crash.
