Derby man critical after accident

DERBY — A Derby man was hospitalized in critical condition late Tuesday afternoon after his car veered into a field at Hillside and 83rd South, the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office said.

Sgt. Amy Osburn said a medical problem apparently caused the accident.

She said the man, who was in his 50s or 60s, was driving south on Hillside, went through the intersection between two utility poles and into a field.

Witnesses at the scene reported having trouble getting through to 911, Osburn said.
