Tonganoxie Leavenworth County Sheriff Dave Zoellner has been treated and released from an area hospital after a Thursday morning vehicle accident, a county official said Thursday.
Leavenworth County Commissioner Dean Oroke said undersheriff Ron Cranor confirmed that Zoellner was treated and released from Cushing Memorial Hospital in Leavenworth, but was still experiencing pain in his back and legs.
Security guards at the Leavenworth County Justice Center said they saw Zoellner leaving the courthouse sometime after 9:30 a.m., but they did not see the accident, which officials said happened near the justice center.
Zoellner met with the Board of County Commissioners for 20 minutes shortly after 9 a.m. to discuss security at the justice center. He left the commission chambers after the meeting.
Heather Morgan, county administrator, was informed of the accident about an hour later. She told the commission the accident occurred close to the Leavenworth County Courthouse.
