Police on Friday released the names of the children injured during a Wednesday afternoon crash.
Katlin McLoud, 15, of Lawrence, was flown by air ambulance to Kansas University Hospital after the crash, which occurred just north of the intersection of Lawrence Avenue and Harvard Road, police said. Her condition was not available from the hospital Friday.
McLoud was a passenger in a truck, driven by a 14-year-old Ethan Mireles, which hit a tree, police said. Mireles told investigators his foot slipped off the brake and onto the accelerator as he was turning a corner, causing him to drive into oncoming traffic and careen off the road, police said.
Mireles was treated and released from Lawrence Memorial Hospital, a spokeswoman said.
Police said two other passengers, Gary Kline, 10, of Topeka, and Emilio Mireles, 11, of Lawrence, were taken by ambulance to Lawrence Memorial Hospital, where their conditions were not available Friday.
