Teenager Critically Injured in Rollover Accident near Colwich
COLWICH, Kan. - A 19-year-old man is in critical condition after a rollover accident just west of Colwich. It happened at around 6:15 a.m. Sunday morning in the 19,200 block of west 53rd Street.
Sedgwick County Sheriff's Deputy Keith Allen say the driver lost control of his eastbound car and went into a ditch. As he drove back onto the roadway, the vehicle rolled and the man was ejected. The car came to rest on its roof in the ditch on the north side of the road. A passerby rendered aid until EMS arrived.
The man was transported via EagleMed helicopter to a Wichita hospital. Allen says they're investigating whether alcohol played a role in the crash.
Authorities say the man is from the Colwich area, but his name has not been released
