Ottawa man hospitalized after early-morning accident

February 28, 2009


An Ottawa man was taken to an Overland Park hospital early Saturday morning after a two-vehicle accident on Interstate 35 in Franklin County.

According to a Kansas Highway Patrol report, 47-year-old William P. Mauszycki was ejected from his 1981 Plymouth Reliant at 12:20 a.m. as it rolled over in the ditch west of the southbound lanes. It occurred about 1.4 miles northeast of Kansas Highway 68, also northeast of Ottawa.

Mauszycki’s vehicle was rear-ended by a 2005 Suzuki Verona, driven by Tyler Sellers, 22, of Council Grove, according to the report that said Sellers was traveling at a high rate of speed.

Sellers, who wore a seat belt, was not injured. Mauszycki, who suffered disabling injuries, did not wear a seat belt, and Franklin County medics transported him to Overland Park Regional Medical Center.

Unfortunately they will probably rule that the injured man was responsible for his own injuries for not having a seatbelt on even though the kid was excessively speeding. The kid may have lucked out, hope I'm wrong though.
