Labette County Fatal Car Accident
By Kate Inman
PARSONS, KS.--- A Labette County car accident claims the life of a young Parsons driver. The wreck happened just before 8 this morning on Pratt Road, just north of 16000 Road south of Parsons. When first responders arrived at the scene, a 2007 Ford Mustang was fully engulfed in flames.
Authorities determined the car was traveling southbound on Pratt Road, when the vehicle slid into the west ditch, struck a tree, and then caught fire. Once the fire was extinguished, officials found and extricated a 14-year-old driver from the vehicle. The driver, who has not been named, died in the accident.
The Labette County Sheriff's Department is further investigating the crash.
