Truck driver hospitalized after rollover

ATWOOD — A Texas man was hospitalized after rolling a semi in Rawlins County at 2:37 p.m. Thursday.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reported a 2005 Brenner Tank rig driven by Robert L. Harper, 60, Pasadena, Texas, was eastbound on Rawlins County Road AA following another truck, which stopped short of the intersection to allow a third vehicle to turn west from Rawlins County Road 10.

Harper was unable to stop his truck, which entered the ditch and rolled onto its passenger side.

He was transported to Rawlins County Health Center for treatment of possible injuries.

The KHP reported he was wearing a safety belt.
