A Blue Valley High senior died early Saturday after being ejected during a single vehicle accident in Northeast Riley County.

Trevor Cole Redding, 17, of Randolph died at the scene two miles northeast of Leonardville. He was taken to Anderes-Pfeifley Funeral Home.

According to a Kansas Highway Patrol crash report, Garrett Olson, 19, of Leonardville was driving a 1990 Honda Accord around 1:30 a.m. eastbound at the 11000 block of LK and W Road when the vehicle went into a skid.

The vehicle entered the north ditch and struck a rock wall. The vehicle then overturned, ejecting Redding.

Olson and another passenger, Lane Milton Howe, 17, Riley, were transported to Mercy Regional Health Center for injuries.

None of the occupants were wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, authorities said.
