RILEY COUNTY, Kan. (WIBW) -- Riley County police officials believe speed and alcohol were factors in a single vehicle rollover accident that sent a Manhattan man to the hospital.
Emergency crews were called to the 4800 block of McDowell Creek Road Wednesday night in the southern part of Riley County just before 7 PM for the report of an injury accident.
Officials say Kenneth Upton, 35, of Manhattan, was southbound on McDowell Creek Road when his 1990 Dodge Ram pick-up truck left the roadway to the west, striking a tree and fence and overturning in the process.
Upton was transported to the Geary Community Hospital in Junction City with a head injury.
The Riley County Police Department and Kansas Highway Patrol are investigating the crash.
