Teen killed in Pottawatomie Co wreck

(KMZA)--An early Wednesday morning two-vehicle Pottawatomie County wreck claimed the life of St. Mary's teenager.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says it happened on U.S. 24 Highway, west of Belvue, around 6:15.

The Patrol says 19-year-old Phillip Harrison was westbound when the passenger side tires on his Toyota Camry dropped off the roadway and he overcorrected. His car slid sideways into the eastbound lane and was struck on the passenger side by a Dodge Ram pickup truck driven by 31-year-old Leon Weisbender, of St. George.

Harrison was transported to the Wamego Health Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Weisbender was also transported to the hospital with suspected minor injuries.

The Patrol says both drivers, who were alone in their vehicles, were wearing seatbelts when the wreck occurred.
