RENO COUNTY — Two Reno County men were injured in an accident Tuesday evening between Partridge and Arlington.

According to the Reno County Sheriff's Office, around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, deputies were sent to the 12400 block of south K-61 for a rollover accident.

They found 20-year-old Gauge Belvin of Sylvia and 21-year-old Kyle Canady of Arlington in a vehicle that had rolled multiple times off of the highway and come to rest on its wheels, against a steep berm.

Belvin had fallen asleep at the wheel, left the roadway to the right, crossed Lake Cable Road and jumped the railroad tracks.

Neither Belvin or Canady had seatbelts on. Belvin was partially ejected from the vehicle. Canady had to be removed by fire personnel. Both were taken to the hospital. Their injuries were not life-threatening.
