Ted Collins was injured Sunday when he was attempting to move tree debris from the roadway three miles east of Highland.
The strong winds Sunday night contributed to the tree blocking his path on 240th Road.
According to authorities, a vehicle heading westbound hit Collins and the tree in the roadway.
KNZA reports that Collins was transferred to the University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City for treatment. The hospital listed Collins in serious condition.
The driver of the other vehicle, Cameron Twombly, was not injured, according to KNZA.
Collins is the City Attorney for Highland and White Cloud.
