Child injured in Wednesday wreck

(KAIR)--A 9-year-old child received hospital treatment after the driver of the vehicle they were riding in fell asleep.

That’s according to a report from Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie, who said the wreck happened early Wednesday morning in the 11000 block of K-7 Highway, located in rural Atchison County.

According to the report, 29-year-old Kevin Berning, of Nortonville, was behind the wheel of the Chevy pickup when he fell asleep. The truck exited the right side of K-7 Highway, and crashed into the ditch.

Berning and the 9-year-old were both taken to the hospital by a passerby.

According to Laurie, the child was treated for neck pain, but Berning was not hurt.

The wreck happened just before 12:30 Wednesday morning.
