A McPherson County teen was killed over the holiday weekend in a fatal car accident near Inman.

Tyler Karraker of Little River, age 19, was driving on Hwy 61 near Inman when his vehicle was struck by a Dodge Ram pickup pulling a horse trailer, driven by Tally Klitze of Windom. The car driven by Karraker came to a stop across both northbound lanes of the highway, where it was then struck by a semi-truck heading north.

Karraker was transported to the hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. The accident happened just before 9 pm Saturday.

All of those involved in the accident were wearing seatbelts. No one else suffered any injuries. A horse in the trailer pulled by Klitze did not survive the accident, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol.
