Deadly Week on Kansas Highways; Four Killed Near Silver Lake

It's been a deadly week on Kansas highways. Yesterday (THUR) morning, four people were killed in an accident in Shawnee County, including three Topeka students. KPR's J. Schafer reports.

Three Topeka students were among four people killed in a crash Thursday morning. The Highway Patrol says the accident happened when two vehicles collided on U.S. Highway 24, east of Silver Lake. Three students at Silver Lake schools were killed in one car. They've been identified as 17-year-old Devin Greeve, a senior at Silver Lake High; 11-year-old Gabby Greeve, a sixth-grader at Silver Lake Elementary, and 14-year-old Tyler Crouse, a freshman at Silver Lake High. The patrol says 47-year-old Lance Lenard of Rossville also died in the collision, and a 13-year-old in the car with Lenard remains hospitalized in stable condition. I'm J. Schafer.
