Clarkson man critically injured in early morning accident

On Sunday morning just after 6:00 a.m. the Stanton County Sheriff’s office responded to and investigated a one vehicle accident that critically injured a 32 year old Clarkson man.  The accident occurred when an eastbound car on Hwy 32 driven by Kenneth Saxton lost control for unknown reasons and went through the Highway 15 intersection and rolled into the north ditch landing back on its wheels.  Saxton was removed from the wreckage and transported to the West Point Hospital by Howells Rescue and later transferred to UNMC in Omaha for treatment.  Seatbelts did not appear to be in use and the vehicle was a total loss. The accident remains under investigation.
