Shawnee Police Department and Kansas Highway Patrol personnel respond to the scene of a one-vehicle rollover accident involving a 45-year-old Shawnee man Saturday morning along Kansas Highway 7 at Shawnee Mission Parkway. Trooper Ricky Dilks of the HIghway Patrol, said the driver was entering southbound K-7 from a Shawnee Mission Parkway entrance ramp at about 9 a.m., when he lost control of the vehicle on the wet pavement. The vehicle then left the side of the road and overturned. The driver, whose identity was not released, was not injured, Dilks said. He was wearing his seat belt, which Dilks said "definitely" spared him from injury.
