Commissioner Duncan Injured in Crash

KSAL StaffOctober 31, 2014

A Saline County Commissioner is transported to the hospital after a single vehicle crash.

According to Sheriff Glen Kochanowski, Commissioner Randy Duncan told EMS he had back pain after his 2013 Ford Focus ran off the road and crashed through a barbed wire fence in the 11000 block of W. State Street on Thursday afternoon.

Duncan tells KSAL News, “My seatbelt and airbag saved my life.”

The car’s emergency alert system called 911 after hitting a pine tree in a field. Duncan was unable to tell deputies at the scene what happened in the moments leading up to crash that occurred at 4:10pm.

Duncan tells KSAL News that he was heading home to check on his animals after he attended Governor Brownback’s “Clean Sweep” bus tour in Oakdale Park, “I think I fell asleep,” he said.

Deputies say it appears Duncan was westbound on West State Street, when for an unknown reason, the vehicle crossed the center line and entered the ditch. No citation was issued.

Duncan remains in the hospital for observation but expects to go home this weekend, “I’m getting great care and great food with no diet restrictions,” he said.
