Guymon Residents Injured In Kearney County KS Crash

KSCB News - November 25, 2013 8:23 am

Three people were injured, including one who was thrown from the vehicle, in a single-car accident Thursday night in Kearny County.

Toribio Baten, 30, Guymon, Okla., was northbound on Kansas Highway 25 when he lost control of his pickup on the icy road and drove into a ditch, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.

As the vehicle slid broadside through the ditch, the driver side wheels furrowed into the dirt, causing the vehicle to overturn. The truck overturned 1 3/4 times and came to rest on the passenger side.

Cody Montoya, 19, Guymon, was ejected from the vehicle and landed in a ditch just north of the vehicle. He was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Wichita, but has since been released.

Baten was taken to Kearny County Hospital, and also has since been released, along with Ramon Horton-Chavez, 30, Guymon.

The other passengers, Nicolas Rojo-Sica, 38, Guymon, and Estuardo Mejia, 22, Guymon, were not injured.

Montoya, Horton-Chavez and Rojo-Sica were not wearing seat belts, according to the KHP. Baten and Mejia were wearing seat belts.
