Accident Sends Elderly Reno County Man To Wichita Hospital
A western Reno County man was flown to a Wichita hospital during the noon hour Friday after a crash in the 8600 block of West 4th.
Emergency officials found 75-year-old Marvin Dale Farney pinned in his wrecked vehicle.
Farney was eastbound on 4th when his vehicle went off the south side of the roadway, striking two mailboxes and a concrete culvert.
Jaws of Life was used to extract Farney from his vehicle before being flown to Wesley Hospital by Eagle Med Helicopter.
He appeared to have a broken hip and possible abdominal injuries. He was wearing his seat-belt and airbags deployed.
Cause of the accident is still under investigation.
