|An Humphreys resident received what the highway patrol called minor injuries in a single vehicle accident yesterday morning two miles east of Tindall.|
The highway patrol said 21 year old Phillip Galvin was taken by ambulance to Wright Memorial Hospital in Trenton. The patrol report said Galvin was westbound on Grundy County Route O when what was described as a vulture struck the windshield in front of the driver. Damage was minor to the car. Galvin was not wearing a seat belt.
Just a quarter mile west of Chillicothe late yesterday afternoon, the highway patrol said a resident of Leona, Kansas received minor injuries in an U-S Highway 36 accident.
The patrol said 38 year old Taylor Gatz refused medical attention. The patrol reported Gatz was eastbound when his car ran off the right side of U-S 36 and struck a guard rail.
The vehicle then crossed the eastbound lanes and struck a concrete bridge railing on the left side of 36. The car was demolished. The patrol said Gatz was wearing a seat belt.
