A Reno County man is being treated at a Wichita hospital after an early morning rollover crash.
Around 7:45 Friday morning, Reno County deputies were dispatched to to an injury accident on Netherland Road between 4th and 17th Avenues after a passerby saw a car in a field and a man laying in a nearby ditch. That's near the northwest corner of the county.
Deputies arrived and found a man in the ditch suffering from multiple injuries. He was conscious and communicating, and was taken to a Wichita hospital in serious condition. He's been identified as 41-year-old Phuong Pham of Sylvia.
Investigators believe Pham was northbound on Netherland Road when he left the roadway, then made several attempts to correct and lost control. The car eventually left the road and rolled over, ejecting the driver. They believe speed was a factor in the crash.
