Man thrown from truck in accident

July 11, 2001


Gary L. Hall was southbound on U.S. Highway 59 in a 1994 two-ton Ford pickup when his right rear tire blew, causing the other right rear tire to blow, a Kansas Highway Patrol accident report said.

The vehicle went onto the right shoulder, Hall lost control, and his truck rolled and slid across the road, coming to rest in the east ditch. Hall was thrown from the truck, which was loaded with road oil, and landed in the east ditch.

The accident occurred at 4 p.m., three miles north of Ottawa.
