A 30-year-old Olathe man was injured Thursday afternoon in a rollover accident on Kansas Highway 10.

The accident occurred about 5 p.m. According to a report from the Kansas Highway Patrol, the man, identified as Robert Tyson Campster, was driving a Honda Accord eastbound on K-10 near Kill Creek when the vehicle went to the right, then back to the left before rolling five times in the median.

Campster was taken to Overland Park Regional Medical Center, with what was believed to be minor injuries. By Friday morning, he had been discharged from the hospital.

It is NOT the road it's the drivers. Since I know at least half the following posts will blame the highway.

It was an old man who refused to exceed 72 mph.

Ya Damm you "Alceste" you old fart driving 72mph in the left lane. This is what happens when you block the "passing lane". People are forced pass you in the right lane, and accidents happen.

Sounds like a failed attempt at "the De Soto slingshot" to me. I'm glad no one was injured very bad.

The car was pretty damaged. I'm glad the injuries were minor.

Love the De Soto slingshot comment. Combine that with an SUV and it becomes a boomerang. Glad no one was hurt as well. No, it's not the road. It's the mindset or lack of of those driving it.
