Morris County wreck hurts one person

A Council Grove man was hurt after his SUV crashed south of the town on Monday.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 28-year-old Jessie Pelaez was southbound on Kansas Highway 177 just south of Council Grove when he went off the highway for unlisted reasons. Pelaez overcorrected when he tried to get the SUV back on the road, instead sending it across the highway into a ditch where it overturned.

Pelaez was taken to Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka. His condition has not been released. Pelaez was not wearing his seat belt when he crashed.
