Man airlifted to Kearney after rollover


NORCATUR -- A Norcatur man was airlifted to a Nebraska hospital after an accident at 9 a.m. Sunday in Decatur County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reported Brian Scott Kelley, 55, was eastbound in the 2600 block of BB Lane, approximately 10.5 miles west of Norcatur, when he lost control of his 1991 Toyota pickup while crossing a bridge. The pickup rolled and came to rest against the bridge guard rail.

Kelley, who was ejected from the vehicle, was transported to Oberlin and then airlifted to Good Samaritan Hospital, Kearney, Neb., for treatment of injuries.

The KHP said he was not wearing a seat belt.
