Colby, Kan. -- A Colby man has been airlifted to a hospital in Denver following an accident Saturday morning.

It happened on Thomas County Road 20, about two miles south of Colby. The Kansas Highway Patrol says 22-year-old Brady Rietcheck was traveling southbound in his pickup truck when he entered the east ditch.

Troopers say Rietcheck over corrected and shot across the road into the west ditch, where his truck rolled several times, ejecting him. Rietcheck's accident may have gone undiscovered for hours and could have happened between 1:30 a.m. and 9:17 a.m. when the accident was discovered.

Rietcheck was transported to Citizens Medical Center in Colby before being airlifted to Swedish Medical Center in Denver.
