Three people were hurt, one seriously, in a rollover crash early today in Reno County.
At 6:30 Thursday morning, deputies responded to a rollover at K-96 and Sand Creek Road, south of Hutchinson, and found a Ford Explorer on its side in the center median of the highway.
Three men were laying in the median with various injuries. The driver was most seriously hurt, and flown to a Wichita hospital. Another was taken to a Hutchinson hospital and the third refused treatment at the scene.
Investigators say the SUV had been westbound on K-96 when it left the roadway on the right. The driver then over-corrected and it rolled several times across the highway.
No one in the Explorer was wearing a seat belt.
