Sheriff: Teen in fatal crash said he had taken LSD

Posted: Updated:

BENTON, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas sheriff says a teenager who was driving the wrong way in a collision that killed him and two women had told a deputy hours earlier he had taken the hallucinogenic drug LSD.

Butler County Sheriff Kelly Herzet tells The Wichita Eagle ( ) deputies didn't have grounds to arrest 16-year-old Dominic Stolfi when they responded to a disturbance call at a home near Benton at 2:40 a.m. Sunday and learned Dominic and a 16-year-old friend had taken the drug.

That friend was taken to a hospital by ambulance while Dominic's father took him home.

Herzet says Dominic later found the keys to the family's Ford Explorer and crashed head-on at 6 a.m. into a car on K-254, killing himself and two Potwin women, Lisa Hardy and Nancy Ross.
