Man receives life-threatening injuries after wrecking pickup truck near Baldwin City

October 19, 2012


A 23-year-old Lawrence man was taken to Overland Park Regional Medical Center with life-threatening injuries after he crashed his vehicle into a ditch around 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

Douglas County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. Steve Lewis said the man, Treyton Miller, was driving westbound on North 400 Road near Baldwin City when his 1999 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck left the road and hit a utility pole, a street sign and a culvert. The man then got back on the road and turned north onto North 1600 Road before again leaving the road and wrecking the vehicle in the ditch.

Lewis said alcohol is suspected to be a contributing factor in the accident. Overland Park Regional Medical Center was unable to give an update on Miller’s condition.

That is one tough truck...Chevrolet Silverado , so tough you can hit a utility pole, a street sign, a culvert and get back on the road only to crash in a ditch, so much for Ford tough

LJworld might want to get the facts straight before releasing a story because I was on the scene and the only thing that happened was he hit an embankment was injured and alchohol may be involved but a report has not been filed yet. The only damage to his truck was from a previous accident. I drove his truck home and it is not damaged. This story should be pulled and edited to show the true facts instead of a reporter just making things up and slandering a good kid but until then the families attorney is checking into it.......

"It appears" to me that you have no clue of what you are talking about because I spoke with the Sgt. along with several other deputies and all they had determined is that he ran into the embankment.,the Sgt. and I were the last ones to leave. Yes he has made some bad choices but there was no collision with a utility pole, sign or culvert and then returning to vehicle for a fourth collision, that is all that I am trying to point out. If the Sgt. truly said those comments then He is the one that has his facts wrong.

I hope everyone that spends all day and night making rediculous comments on these stories that involve someone being seriously hurt or even dead have the favor returned to them. I'd like to see what you have to say when it's your family member that has life threatening injuries. I'm sure it won't be so entertaining to you then.
