    • Late-night accident claims three lives

    • A late-night accident on U.S. Highway 283 and U.S. Highway 50 claimed three lives and sent another victim to Wesley Medical Center in critical condition. Four people in a van heading southbound on U.S. Highway 283 failed to yield at a posted stop sign and were struck by a westbound semi-tractor trailer shortly before midnight yesterday, Kansas Highway Patrol public resource trooper Ron Knoefel said Thursday. The vehicles went into the south ditch and caught fire. "Investigation into their identities continues because of the fire," Knoefel said. The driver of the semi-tractor trail was not transported to the hospital and received minor injuries.
