Leavenworth County Sheriff

A 17-year-old Leavenworth youth was in critical condition Tuesday afternoon at the University of Kansas Medical Center following a one-car accident Monday morning. Trevor Messinger, 17, was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Steve Perrin, 17, Leavenworth, when the accident occurred. The vehicle was headed north on Leavenworth County Road 5 when Perrin lost control of the vehicle. It went across the southbound lane and hit a driveway entrance. It turned end over end, landed on its top and skidded off the road into a ditch. Messinger was ejected from the vehicle.

The accident occurred a quarter-mile south of 199th Street.

A LifeStar helicopter transferred Messinger to the medical center. Perrin was taken to St. John Hospital by Leavenworth County EMS and was treated and released.
