Monday night Atchison County ATV accident kills one, injures three others

A Cummings woman is dead, killed Monday in an early evening Atchison County ATV accident.

According to Atchison County Undersheriff Toby Smith, 19-year-old Jentri Fowler was transported by Atchison County EMS to Mosaic Life Care in St. Joseph, Missouri, where she later died from her injuries.

The accident occurred shortly after 6:00 in the 13000 block of 214th Road in rural Atchison County.

The Kansas Highway Patrol reports Fowler was driving the Polaris Ranger westbound on 214th Road, with three other passengers aboard, when she lost control, sending the ATV into the south ditch. The vehicle rolled over several times, ejecting everyone, before stopping on the driver’s side.

Eighteen-year-old passenger Jaycee Ernzen, of Cummings, was transported to Mosaic Life Care for the treatment of what Smith called serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The other two passengers, 20-year-old Ashley Pieper, of Lancaster, and 19-year-old Caden McAfee, of Valley Falls, were treated at the scene.

According to Fowler’s social media profile, she was a 2018 graduate of Jefferson County North High School, and a student at Kansas State University.
