MetrosourceOctober 10, 2022

Three Topeka children are dead following a crash on the Kansas Turnpike.

Authorities say a semi-truck and a minivan collided on the turnpike near the Southwest 69th Street overpass just south of Topeka on Saturday morning.

Three children in the minivan, eight-year-old Brooklyn Peery, nine-year-old Kylie Lunn and nine-year-old Laila El Azri, were killed.

The driver of the minivan and another eight-year-old passenger were taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while the driver of the semi-truck was not hurt.
