Three people were taken to Hutchinson Regional Medical Center Monday afternoon after a one vehicle roll-over accident south of Buhler.

Emergency officials were dispatched to 56th & Buhler Rd., where the accident occurred.

A 1998 GMC Suburban driven by 39-year-old Charles Lee Witt left the roadway and struck and damaged a guardrail. His vehicle then fell into a dry creek bed and rolled several times before striking a wooden fence and coming to rest.

Witt and his two passengers in the vehicle, 9-year-old Tristen Jacob Lee Witt and 6-year-old Garrison Charles Lee Witt were transported to the hospital with unknown injuries. All three were wearing seat-belts and Charles Witt was trapped for a short time.

The accident reported around 4:14 p-m, and the cause is still being investigated.
