WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - The Kansas Highway Patrol worked a crash in east Wichita on Saturday after a vehicle drove into a pond.

KHP said the vehicle was traveling eastbound on K-96 when it went off the roadway, across a grass median and into oncoming traffic. The driver hit a KDOT fence and crashed into a pond near the front of Menards.

Troopers said the driver experienced a medical issue while driving, causing him to lose control of the vehicle and crash.

The 20-year-old driver was able to get out of the vehicle and swim to the bank of the pond. He was transported to Via Christi St. Francis for observation.

KHP said this was a single-vehicle and single-occupant accident. No others were injured in the accident.
