Hays teenagers injured in rollover Tuesday


Two Hays teenagers were injured in a one-vehicle rollover Tuesday evening near Hays.

According to Ellis County Sheriff Ed Harbin, Riley Kaus, 18, was eastbound in the 1600 block of Vineyard Road, about a half mile east of Home Depot, at approximately 7:30 p.m. when his Jeep Wrangler slid on snowy road conditions, entered the north ditch and rolled.

Kaus and his sister, 17-year-old Madison, were taken to Hays Medical Center, then airlifted to a Wichita hospital. Their conditions were unknown this morning.

Both were wearing seat belts.

Riley Kaus, a 2012 graduate of Hays High School, is a freshman at Fort Hays State University. Madison Kaus is a junior at Hays High.
