HARPER, Kan. (AP) - Two southern Kansas teenagers are dead and three others are hospitalized after a two-vehicle crash southeast of Harper.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 17-year-old Ayron David Maurer of Harper and one of his passengers, 18-year-old Samuel Michael Cook of Anthony, were killed in the crash at 4:30 p.m. Friday.

The patrol says Maurer was eastbound on Northeast 80 Road when he entered the intersection at Northeast 10 Avenue and collided with a vehicle driven by 15-year-old Joshua Campbell of Harper. Both vehicles went into the ditch and hit a gas line and power pole.

Maurer’s 14-year-old passenger, Colin Nygarrd of Anthony, was listed in serious condition Saturday at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. Campbell was in critical condition and his 15-year-old passenger, John Eshelman of Harper, was in serious condition.
