  • Emergency services were kept busy over the weekend in Pratt County with one-vehicle accidents on Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings that sent five to hospitals.
    Two men, one from Medicine Lodge, suffered injuries in a one-vehicle accident at 7 a.m. Saturday morning at Preston.
    Daniel Enriquez, 49 of Meeker, Colo., was traveling northeast on K61 in a 2011 Dodge truck when the vehicle went off the road on the right hand side, struck a Kansas Department of Transportation sign then entered a culvert, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol crash logs website.
    The vehicle then became airborne and traveled 51 feet before landing and crashing into a tree.
    Pratt County EMS transported Enriquez to Pratt Regional Medical Center then he was transported to Via Christi St. Francis campus in Wichita where he remains in fair condition.
    Rafael Rico, 42 of Medicine Lodge, a passenger in the vehicle, was transported directly to Via Christi St. Francis campus in Wichita via helicopter. Status for Rico is unknown.
    Both men were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident.
    Morning accidents continued Sunday morning when a 2000 Mitsubishi was found abandon and wrecked on NE 5th Street about a half mile east of Cairo on a dirt access road, said Pratt Sheriff Sgt. Jimmy White.
    The vehicle was discovered at 8:57 a.m. It had gone off the road on the north side and rolled over one time but the driver was nowhere to be found and his identity was a mystery for some time.
    The driver, Dalton Grady of Salina, whose 19th birthday was Monday, May 13, was later located uninjured. This accident is still under investigation.
    Emergency services were called out again to an accident early Monday morning just after 5 a.m.
    Patricia Wolnik, 55 of Dodge City was westbound in a 2000 Chevy Trailblazer on East U.S. 54 near 130th Avenue when she lost control and the vehicle went into the median then back across the westbound lane and into the ditch on the north side of the road where it rolled over.
    Pratt County EMS transported Wolnik and her two sons, 18-year-old Derek Wolnik and 14-year-old Kyle Wolnik, all of Dodge City, to Pratt Regional Medical Center were they were all treated and released.
