Youth injured in sport utility vehicle accident

July 23, 2008

Emergency service providers with the Leavenworth County Sheriff's Office, Leavenworth County EMS and the Stranger Township Volunteer Fire Department responded just after 4 p.m. July 8 to a rollover accident about one-half mile west of County Road 5 on 207th Street.

Deputies on the scene said a passenger-side tire of the vehicle - a Ford Explorer driven by 17-year-old Scott City resident Kallie Folsom - was believed to have veered off the north shoulder of 207th Street when she overcompensated and lost control of the vehicle. The SUV rolled into a ditch on the southern side of the road.

Folsom was reportedly conscious and aware of her surroundings before being taken to the University of Kansas Hospital by Leavenworth County EMS.

She was released from the hospital July 10.

Deputies said she was wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash.
