15-Year-Old Kansas Boy Killed After Pickup Crashes into Bridge Rail


COUNCIL GROVE, Kan. (KAKE) — A 15-year-old Kansas boy died over the weekend after the pickup truck he was driving crashed into a bridge rail. KAKE TV reports that Kolter Litke, of Council Grove, was taken to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The Morris County Sheriff’s Office was notified just before 11 a.m. Sunday about a crash south of Wilsey. A deputy arrived to find a wrecked Chevy truck. The deputy began performing CPR on the driver but to no avail.

The investigation indicates the pickup went off the roadway and hit a concrete bridge rail. It’s unclear what caused the vehicle to leave the road.
