Grant L. Lysell-Alkire Obituary. A Kansas mother paid a heartfelt tribute to her son, 21, who was killed in a horrific crash, while his brother, 16, escaped with ‘broken fingers and bruised lungs’ as a monster storm descended on the United States.
Ericka Lysell said she “never dreamed of having to make a post like this” just days before Christmas after her eldest son, Grant Lysell-Alkire, died in a car accident south of Salina.
‘Never did I dream I would ever have to make a post like this,’ Ericka wrote on the post to Facebook.
“Our sweet Grant Lysell-Alkire died last night in a car accident, the roads were extremely icy.’
The 21-year-old was in the rollover crash with his 16-year-old brother, Sawyer Lysell-Alkire, who had been driving the car at the time of the devastating incident.
‘Sawyer so far is ok, some broken fingers and very bruised lungs they are monitoring,’ wrote Ericka.
