LAKIN, Kan.-- A Lakin teen was involved in a rollover accident, the night before his high school graduation.
Joe Seeger-Guebara, 18, was airlifted to Via Christi St. Francis and remains in the surgical ICU.
The accident happened on River Road, three miles west of the town of Lakin in Kearney County, around 10 p.m. on Saturday.
"Something we didn't expect to happen. It's very tragic. [It was the] night before his big day to walk and get his diploma," said Jason Seeger, brother.
The 18-year-old is a volunteer firefighter for the Lakin Fire Department. He plans to attend Garden City Community College to pursue a fire science degree.
Lakin High School Principal Chuck Mahon said the teen's classmates and teachers have sent cards and messages to the teen. Local establishments have also placed donation jars to collect money for the teen's medical expenses.
