Following an evening rollover wreck, a Williamsburg man trekked more than eight miles toward his hometown before emergency personnel evaluated his health and drove him home. 

Kenneth Latta, 50, Williamsburg, wrecked his vehicle 9:34 p.m. Monday at the 2100 block of Old Highway 50, according to Jerrod Fredricks, master deputy with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.

Following the wreck, a witness reported that Latta exited and left the vehicle on Old Highway 50. About 8.3 miles southwest of the wreck’s location, Fredricks said, law enforcement officers found Latta walking at 5:04 a.m. Tuesday near the intersection of Colorado Road and Old Highway 50. Emergency personnel checked out his health and took Latta home after he refused hospitalization, Fredricks said. 

Police were unable to determine if Latta was intoxicated at the time of the wreck, Fredricks said, but the incident still is under investigation.
