• Daily Leader staff report A Dodge City man had his leg nearly amputated Thursday in the Air Products parking lot west of Liberal.

According to a press release from the Kansas Highway Patrol, at 11:05 a.m. Roy Wilson Stevens, 66, had walked behind a 2007 Freightliner semi when the truck was backing up. Apparently, the driver of the semi, 54-year-old Chris Macy, of Liberal, didn’t see Stevens and Stevens was ran over and dragged a short distance.

According to an unnamed emergency medical technician on the scanner who was in the ambulance taking Stevens to Southwest Medical Center, Steven’s leg was, “Fileted. His thigh bone is broken and the leg is basically amputated,” the technician reported. “There is only a small amount of tissue holding it together.”

According to a spokesman at Southwest Medical Center, Stevens was transferred Thursday to Northwest Hospital in Amarillo, Texas, “in critical but stable condition.”
