KSAL employeesAugust 16, 2021

An 18-year-old driver leaves his cat and pickup truck after crashing into a 35-foot canyon.

Saline County Undersheriff Brent Melander told KSAL News that Camden Spano-Lund, of Assaria, was rushed to hospital near the intersection of Ohio and Mentor Road around 5:30 a.m. on Saturday morning after an accident with injuries.

MPs say Spano-Lund drove a 2000 Chevy pickup and missed a turn on Mentor Road and rolled a deep ditch into 4 feet of water. He went to a nearby house for help while Salina Fire Rescue arrived to rescue the black and white cat.

Spano-Lund was treated for non-life threatening injuries at the Salina Regional Health Center and then jailed for DUI, possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and underage alcohol use.
