A 23-year-old Hugoton man was injured Tuesday morning when the semitrailer he was driving overturned on a county road in Seward County.

Robert Elliott was southbound in a 1988 Peterbilt semi on county road B, about 0.4 miles off of Kansas Highway 51 and 15 miles east of Hugoton, when his vehicle exited the road. According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, Elliott attempted to return to the roadway but instead overturned into the west ditch.

He was taken to Southwest Medical Center in Liberal, according to the KHP. He was not wearing his seat belt.
