A crash in northern Lyon County sent an El Dorado man to Topeka for medical treatment afterward.


Deputy Zach Shafer says 58-year-old Mark Gillis was westbound on US Highway 56 when he crashed around 7:30 pm in the 1800 block of the highway, or near the Admire-Council Grove exit. Gillis' pickup went off the highway for currently unlisted reasons. He then overcorrected, sending the truck back across the highway before it rolled twice.

Gillis was not wearing his seatbelt. A rescue crew from Emporia Fire transported him to Stormont-Vail in Topeka. The extent of his injuries has not been announced.
