Joe Denoyer - December 30, 2021 1:59 am

A dog running on US Highway 83, 8.7 miles South of US Highway 50, is being blamed for a cattle truck overturning in Finney County on Tuesday.

25-year-old Brandon Smith of Plains, told the Kansas Highway Patrol, he swerved to miss a large dog in the road when his 2014 Freightliner, hauling cattle, became unstable and overturned onto the driver’s side. The truck came to rest in the northbound lane of U.S. Highway 83 with the trailer in the east ditch.

Smith was taken to St. Catherine Hospital in Garden City with suspected minor injuries.

The report did not give the condition of the cattle.
