Road Rage May Be to Blame for Rollover Accident

TOPEKA, Kan. - Road rage may be to blame for an accident in Topeka Thursday involving one vehicle at about 4:50 p.m.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says a 1999 Ford SUV was eastbound on the ramp from I-470 to I-70 near Wanamaker Road.

Troopers say the driver attempted to pass another vehicle on the left and lost control. It rolled, landing in the south ditch facing northwest.

The driver is identified as Joshua Bessette, 28. Troopers say he was taken to St. Francis hospital in critical condition.

The highway patrol is investigating the accident, including whether another vehicle was involved.

They ask anyone who may have seen what happened to call them at 296-3102.
