3 Die in Head-on Crash in Southwest Kansas

KSAL Staff - December 24, 2015 9:34 am

Authorities say three people have been killed in a head-on crash in southwest Kansas.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the crash happened around 6 p.m. Wednesday when a westbound car attempted to pass multiple tractor-trailers and collided with an eastbound car on U.S. 54 in Ford County.

All three people in the eastbound car that was hit died. The patrol identified the victims as 20-year-old Maggie Michele Hall, of Elkhart, 24-year-old Carl Allen Hall, of Elkhart, and 29-year-old Hector Rene Gonzalez, of Wichita.

The driver of the westbound car and one of his passengers were flown to a Wichita hospital. A 2-year-old and 4-year-old who also were passengers in the westbound car were taken to a Dodge City hospital. The patrol says the younger child wasn’t hurt and was released.
