MANSFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri man and two women from Kentucky were killed and four other people were injured in a head-on collision in southern Missouri.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred late Sunday on U.S. 60 about 3 miles east of Mansfield.
The patrol says a pickup truck driven by 22-year-old Austin Branham of Mansfield crossed the highway median and collided head-on with a van driven by 54-year-old Melanie Hays of Melber, Kentucky. After the impact, Branham's truck overturned and caught fire.
Branham, Hays and a passenger in her van, 76-year-old Shirley Phillips, of Bardwell, Kentucky, died in the accident.
Four other passengers in Hays' van suffered serious injuries and were airlifted to a Springfield hospital.
