A Texas man is injured in an early morning crash on I-70.
According to Sheriff Glen Kochanowski, alert truck drivers slowed down to avoid hitting a van that had come to rest on the interstate - after it hit a disabled vehicle that was parked on the shoulder.
EMS transported 38-year-old Adrian Leon-Reyes of Irving, Texas, to Salina Regional Hospital with a head injury.
Deputies say Leon-Reyes was eastbound on I-70 at about 3:30am Friday morning - when the 2000 Chevy Astro van he was driving drifted off the road and hit disabled 1988 GMC Jimmy that was parked on the shoulder at mile marker #247 near Muir Road.
Sheriff Kochanowski tells KSAL News that the GMC Jimmy was not occupied.
The Sheriff says alcohol played a role in the crash and Leon-Reyes could face possible charges.
