About 8:30 p.m. Harry Balazs was driving a Chevrolet pickup truck west on the highway when his vehicle left the roadway, hit a driveway culvert and turned over, according to a Kansas Highway Patrol dispatcher.
Balazs was ejected from the vehicle. The extent of his injuries was unknown late Wednesday night.
The section of U.S. Highway 40 between East 300 and East 400 roads was temporarily shut down and traffic was rerouted.
