PERRY, Kan. – A 1-month-old girl is dead and three people were injured after a two-vehicle crash on US 24 in Jefferson County west of Perry.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Kaysein Harris of Lawrence was in her safety restraint when the accident happened just before 3 p.m. Monday. The Kansas Highway Patrol reports a westbound 2008 Honda Civic moved over to the gravel shoulder but the driver overcorrected and the car slid sideways into the eastbound lanes.
An eastbound 2010 Ford pickup truck struck the Honda’s passenger side, killing Kaysein. A 3-year-old girl in the Honda and the car’s driver also were injured.
The Patrol says 32-year-old Aaron Thakker of Eudora was driving the pickup truck and also was possibly injured.
