A Hoisington man has died of injuries sustained in a rollover accident in Barton County Wednesday.
It happened around 10:15 a.m. at the intersection of Northwest 70 Road and Northwest 10th Avenue, about 3 miles south of Hoisington.
The Barton County Sheriff’s Office says a Ford passenger car was southbound on 10th Ave. when the driver, Michael Smith, 24, lost control due to rough road conditions. The car then went into a skid and struck a telephone pole.
Smith was extricated from the car and flown to a Wichita hospital, where he later died.
The passenger in the vehicle, Delora Donovan, 21, also of Hoisington, was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Her condition is unknown.
