PERRY, Kan. (WIBW) -- Both California men injured Wednesday morning when the tractor-trailer they were riding in rolled on Hwy. 24 were reportedly not wearing their seat belts at the time.

The crash happened around 9:15 a.m, east of Perry, and shut down the highway for hours. The semi was heading west and going too fast when it approached the S-curve. near the Phillips Rd. intersection, the Kansas Highway Patrol said.

The Kenworth toppled and skidded to a rest along the side of the road.

The driver, Ronald Voll, 40, and his passenger, Sol Hernandez, 26, suffered minor injuries and were taken to Stormont Vail hospital, the Kansas Highway Patrol said.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

After the incident, troopers closed off Hwy. 24 and were detouring traffic while they cleaned up the scene. The road has since re-opened.
