The Kansas Highway Patrol is investigating after a man was seriously injured in a single vehicle accident on Interstate 35 in Lenexa.

Troopers say the accident occurred around 6:00 a.m.. One vehicle left the highway and rolled. Investigators identified the driver as 24-year-old Jason A. Varughese, of Pahrump, Nevada.

Investigators say Varughese was northbound in the right lane of Interstate 35, traffic in front of his vehicle slowed and in attempt to avoid colliding with one of the slowing vehicles, Varughese made an avoidance maneuver to the right. His vehicle went off of the roadway, struck a culvert and overturned. Varughese was wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash.

After crashing Varughese extricated himself from the crashed 2001 Toyota passenger car and began walking northbound along the highway, where he was located by the Kansas Highway Patrol. He was later transported by Johnson County Med-Act to an area hospital, where he was said to be in serious condition Friday morning.
