A Kansas teen died Friday evening following a motorcycle crash in north-central Kansas.
It happened just after 7 p.m. on U.S. Highway 56 about five and a half miles east of Herrington in Morris County.
The Kansas Highway Patrol said a Triumph motorcycle was heading eastbound on Highway 56 when its rider lost control, crossed into opposing lanes of traffic and crashed. An oncoming Honda Civic then hit the motorcycle.
Ethan Carroll, 18, of Council Grove, was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. Reports state he was wearing a helmet.
The Wichita couple in the Honda were not seriously hurt.
