A Reno County man is in the hospital after being run over by a truck in Reno County Wednesday morning. 

Authorities were called to the 5000 block of E. Smoots Creek Road in Pretty Prairie around 11:00 a.m. Wednesday. When officers arrived, they found Barbara Giefer who said her husband Edward had been ran over while making repairs to their truck.
