Atwood man dies in rollover accident


ATWOOD -- A 54-year-old man died in a single-vehicle accident at 9:59 p.m. Wednesday when his pickup rolled northwest of Atwood in Rawlins County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reported Duain L. Hafer, Atwood, was westbound on County Road S when his 2006 GMC Sierra went off the road for an unknown reason, over-corrected and entered the ditch before rolling. The driver was ejected from the pickup.

He was transported to Citizens Medical Center, Colby, where he was pronounced dead. The KHP said he was not wearing a seat belt.
