PAXICO, Kan. (WIBW) - Authorities shut down a portion of I-70 Monday for an accident that may have happened hours before.
A vehicle was discovered just after 2:30 pm in a dry creekbed near the Vera Road exit, just east of Paxico.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says 46-year-old Daniel Delatore of Junction City was found inside the car. They believe he'd been there since Sunday night.
Eastbound lanes of I-70 were closed so the Lifestar helicopter could land to transport the victim.
KHP says his injuries were serious, but he was conscious and talking with rescue crews.
