Satanta teen killed in Stevens County crash

KWCH – June 20, 2018

A 17-year-old from Satanta is dead after a Tuesday-afternoon crash eight miles north of US-56 and K-25 in Stevens County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says in the crash reported about 3 p.m., a 2014 Buick Enclave driven by 17-year-old Brandon Salas was traveling east on County Road Y as a Western Star Power Unit driven by a 72-year-old Seward, Nebraska man was southbound on K-25.

For unknown reasons, the Buick failed to yield to the truck at the stop sign, leading to the collision, the KHP’s report says.

“Both vehicles came to rest in the southeast ditch in a field,” the KHP says.

The KHP says Salas died at the scene. The driver of the truck was injured and taken to the Stevens County Hospital.
