An 18-year-old woman from Wichita was involved in a motorcycle accident Friday night east of Herington that killed an 18-year-old Council Grove man, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.

The KHP report said Ethan Robert Carroll was traveling east on U.S. Highway 56 around 7 p.m. Friday when he lost control of his 2001 Triumph motorcycle, laid it down on its side and crossed over into the west-bound lane, where it was struck by a Honda Accord.

The driver of the Accord, Amanda Mae Rose Wilson of Wichita, was transported to Morris County Hospital with possible injuries, the report said.

Her passenger, also from Wichita, was uninjured, the report said.
