Man critically injured in accident on K-254

WICHITA, Kansas – One man is in critical condition after an accident in northeast Wichita.

It happened just before 11 a.m. on K-254.  Authorities say a truck traveling eastbound flew off the bridge and landed on Hillside just north of 45th Street North. It landed on its top and crushed the cab.

“This is not an everyday occurrence. This is a vehicle accident that we do not see normally on the highways, especially at this location on K-254,” said Trooper Chris Mai, Kansas Highway Patrol.

It took emergency crews several minutes to free the driver who was trapped in the crushed cab. He has been identified as 25-year-old Alejandro Contreras-Villa.

He was transported to an area hospital.
