Arizona man hurt in Logan Co. accident


OAKLEY -- An Arizona man was hospitalized after a rollover accident at 10:12 a.m. Wednesday in Logan County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reported David Paul Eakle, 64, Tuscon, Ariz., was driving a 2009 Toyota passenger car westbound on U.S. Highway 40 southwest of Oakley when he attempted to pass a semi.

At the same time, the semi began to pass a third vehicle, forcing Eakle off the road. The car rolled in a dirt field, coming to rest on its top.

Eakle was taken to Logan County Hospital, Oakley, for treatment of possible injuries.

A passenger in the car was not injured. The KHP reported both were wearing seat belts.
