Man Ejected, Flown to Hospital after Crash

A Salina area man was flown to a Wichita hospital after being critically injured in a rollover crash on Saturday evening.

Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan tells KSAL News that 37-year-old Craig McCombs was first transported by EMS to Salina Regional Health Center after he was ejected from a 1998 Chevy S-10 pickup truck that he was driving.

Deputies say just before 9pm, McCombs was westbound on W. State Street and drifted off the road, then over corrected and rolled the truck. He suffered head injuries after be thrown out of the truck that then caught on fire.

About 10 minutes later the pickup was fully engulfed in flames as authorities worked the scene.

Sheriff Soldan says alcohol likely played a role in the crash and that a relative reported the accident after they had been following McCombs in a second vehicle.

The Crash occurred Saturday at 8:53pm about 5-miles west of Salina on West State Street.
