A Lebo teenager was hurt in a one-vehicle accident between Emporia and Lebo on Sunday evening.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says 17-year-old Austin Edwards was northbound on Interstate 35 when the crash happened about four miles east of Emporia shortly before 7:30 pm. Edwards left the Interstate to the left and hit a dirt embankment in a creek bed.
Edwards was taken to Newman Regional Health, which does not release patient conditions to the media. It's unclear why Edwards went off the highway.
