PARK -- A Quinter man was injured in a single-vehicle accident just after noon Wednesday, when a tire blew on a 1989 International truck.

The Kansas Highway Patrol said Edward Eugene Albin, 63, was southbound on County Road 62 southeast of Park in Gove County when the tire blew and the truck went into a ditch, striking an embankment.

Albin was taken to Gove County Hospital for treatment of possible injuries. The KHP said he was not wearing a safety belt.
