BALDWIN CITY, Kan. (AP) — A Lawrence teenager and a Wellsville man are dead after a two-car collision in southern Douglas County six miles east of Baldwin City.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says 53-year-old Rodney Strickell was driving south on a county road around 7 p.m. Saturday when he failed to stop at the U.S. 56 intersection and was struck on the passenger side by an eastbound SUV.

Both vehicles went into the southeast ditch, with Strickell’s car coming to rest on its top.

Strickell and 17-year-old passenger Dylan Strickell of Lawrence died of their injuries.

Two adults and a 14-year-old girl in the SUV, all of Overland Park, sustained possible injuries.
