A 72-year-old Denison man has died from injuries he suffered in a motorcycle accident Sunday in Jefferson County.
Francis Dalsing died Tuesday at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center, Topeka, a hospital spokeswoman said today.
He was brought to St. Francis on Sunday afternoon after the accident on Kansas Highway 16 in Jefferson County near the Jackson County line.
A Kansas Highway Patrol dispatcher said Dalsing was westbound when the motorcycle he was riding struck a culvert, throwing Dalsing from the vehicle. A report did not indicate whether Dalsing was wearing a helmet, the dispatcher said.
A hospital spokeswoman on Wednesday said Dalsing was listed in critical condition at the hospital. She could not explain how the incorrect information was released on Wednesday.
