Injury Accident on Old 81

KSAL StaffOctober 17, 2017

A rural Salina man was transported to the hospital after he swerved his truck to miss an animal on the road.

Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that 60-year-old Matthew Wagoner was driving a 2016 GMC Sierra pickup southbound on North Old 81 around 5:45am Monday morning.

He told deputies he saw a large dog or a deer flash onto the road and swerved to avoid hitting the animal.

He over corrected and skidded down a steep ditch on the highway’s east side.

Wagoner was wearing a seat belt and was hurt in the crash.

EMS transported him to Salina Regional Health Center to be treated for back pain.
