Weekend accidents leave 4 local men in hospitals


Three Fort Riley soldiers were hospitalized after being involved in an accident Friday, according to a Riley County Police Department report.

Bradley Russell was driving with two others when the vehicle he was driving flipped on Fort Riley Boulevard.

All three were transported to Mercy Regional Health Center.

Joshua Danner was treated for cuts to his knees and hands, as well as chest injuries.

Brandon Allen-Terry was treated for cuts to his hands and the back of his head.

Russell was flown to a hospital in Wichita to receive further medical treatment.

In an unrelated incident, a Manhattan man was issued a citation for driving too fast for conditions after he wrecked the motorcycle he was riding, according to a RCPD report.

Lary Hornbaker was riding his Yamaha R6 near the Kansas Highway 18 overpass when he lost control of the vehicle.

He was transported to Irwin Army Hospital at Fort Riley for abrasions to his back and a possible broken collarbone.

Police also issued Hornbaker a citation for equipment violations on his motorcycle. RCPD Lt. Kurt Moldrup said the tread on the tires was too low.
