According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, a 2014 Harley Davidson driven by 49-year-old Lance D. Elliot of Carbondale was westbound on U.S. 24 at Phillips Road along with a 2010 Harley driven by 56-year-old Vicki M. Allen of Oskaloosa shortly before 12:30 Saturday morning.
For an unknown reason, the motorcycles collided, traveled into the south ditch and both drivers were ejected.
