Kansas State Sophmore Killed in Motorcycle Accident

Comments Off

A Kansas State student driving his motorcycle was in an accident Wednesday night. The biology major was not wearing a helmet and was killed after his motorcycle went under an SUV.

Investigation into the accident is ongoing, said Lt. John Eichkorn with the Kansas Highway Patrol. The KHP does not expect to have an official report of the accident ready for about 10 days, he said.

“In cases like this the way it generally works is that once our investigation is complete and we have an official report, we then forward that report to the district attorney’s office,” he said.

The driver of the SUV was not injured. The victim was 20-years-old and a sophmore at the university. The accident happened at the intersection of Denison Avenue and Olympic Drive.
