For the second time in less than a year, a former Saline County Commissioner has been involved in a single-vehicle injury accident.
According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, 57-year-old Randy Duncan was driving a 2014 Ford Focus, headed west on Interstate 70. The car drifted over to the north edge of the road, traveled into the ditch, and across an entrance ramp. It came to rest facing east, against a Kansas Department of Transportation fence.
Duncan was injured, and was was transported by EMS to Salina Regional Health Center. He was buckled up. He tells KSAL News that he is sore, and has some some bumps and bruises both from the crash, and the airbag deploying.
Back in October, Duncan was also involved in a single-vehicle crash. He was driving a 2013 Ford Focus in the 11000 block of W. State Street when for an unknown reason he crossed the center line, entered a ditch, and crashed through a barbed wire fence. At the time, Duncan said that he thought he had fallen asleep.
The crash Tuesday happened at 6:45 in the evening, on Interstate 70 near the N. 9th Street Exit north of Salina.
Duncan served two terms as a Saline County Commissioner, from 2006- 2014.
