UPDATE: Semi Rollover Closes I 70

Todd PittengerSeptember 18, 2019

The rollover of a tractor trailer truck prompted the closure of  a portion of Interstate 70 west of Salina.

According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, just before 6:30 a 2016 Volvo semi drifted into the median. The driver, identified as 23-year-old Lovepreet Singh from Bakersfield, California, over corrected  and flipped the truck and trailer onto its side blocking all of westbound I-70.

Singh suffered suspected serious injuries and was transported by EMS to the hospital in Salina.

The rollover happened in the area of  mile marker 233. Traffic was re-routed north to K-18 Highway, then through Lincoln while first responders worked the scene.
