Muddy conditions are to blame for an injury accident in Haskell County Monday afternoon.  The Kansas Highway Patrol reports a 2017 Peterbuilt was traveling east on Haskell County Line Road  near Highway 83 at about 12:30 Monday afternoon.  The trailer started to slide into the ditch due to the muddy conditions.  The trailer dragged the tractor into the ditch and the vehicle rolled onto its passenger side losing its load.  The driver, 29 year old Patrick Lauppe of Lakin, was injured and taken to St. Catherine Hospital in Garden City.
