A Lecompton man died Sunday from injuries he suffered in a Nov. 6 motorcycle accident on Kansas Highway 10, a local funeral home said.
Jason Kenney, 21, was riding as a passenger on a motorcycle that was struck by a car at an entrance ramp to the Kansas Turnpike west of Lawrence. The Kansas Highway Patrol said Kenney wasn’t wearing a helmet.
The driver of the motorcycle, Matthew Smith, 21, Lawrence, also was injured and not wearing a helmet. He is hospitalized in fair condition at Kansas University Hospital in Kansas City, Kan., a hospital spokesman said.
Officers said Smith and Kenney were headed south on K-10 when the motorcycle was hit by a car heading north and trying to turn left into the Lecompton turnpike toll plaza.
The driver of the car, 21-year-old Karissa Pinegar, of Lawrence, did not require medical attention, the highway patrol said.
Services for Kenney will be announced by Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home.
