The Kansas Highway Patrol reported Bratton was westbound on Interstate 70 approximately 2 miles north of Oakley at 7:28 a.m. Thursday when he lost control of the car he was driving and it entered the median. Bratton overcorrected, and the car went across the westbound lanes, entered the north ditch and rolled twice, coming to rest on its wheels.

Bratton was wearing a seat belt, according to the report.
