An accident last Saturday evening on I-135 sent one person to the hospital.

According to a report from the Kansas Highway Patrol, a 2002 Chevy Suburban 1500 driven by 30 year old Benjamin Brian Gray of Wichita was traveling southbound on I-135 around 6:55 p.m. at about mile marker 59 and passing a 2013 International truck driven by 44 year old Jimmy Ray Martin, Jr. of Lumberton, North Carolina.  

When Gray tried to pull the Suburban back into the right lane after passing, he sideswiped the truck. The Suburban was towed from the scene, and Gray was taken to McPherson Hospital for treatment.
