A 27-year-old Wichita man escaped serious injury Tuesday when his van struck a concrete barrier on I-135 and nearly plunged into the drainage canal below.
The Kansas Highway Patrol said the accident occurred at about 11:10 a.m. as the driver was going south in the outside lane near Harry Street. Investigators said they didn't know what caused him to lose control.
The driver was in fair condition at Wesley Medical Center.
Southbound traffic on I-135 was closed while the accident was being investigated.
