GRAINFIELD -- A Texas man was injured in a single-vehicle accident at 1:45 a.m. Tuesday in Gove County, approximately 3 miles northeast of Grainfield.

According to the Kansas High Patrol, Mark Edwin Hudson, 40, Perryton, Texas, was traveling northbound in a 2005 Kenworth semi on Kansas Highway 23 when he missed a turn. Hudson then entered a county road and backed up across K-23 to turn around.

The trailer of the semi entered the ditch, the KHP reported, causing the semi to overturn and roll onto its driver's side.

Hudson was taken to Gove County Medical Center for treatment of possible injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt, according to the KHP.
