6 dead, 4 injured in Kentucky wreck

Posted: Updated:

NICHOLASVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Six people, including three children, are dead and four are injured after a fiery head-on collision in central Kentucky.

Nicholasville police patrolman Todd White says a station wagon was traveling northbound on U.S. 27 Thursday night when it lost control, crossed the median and collided head-on with a van.

Horrified motorists offered assistance. Some tried to pull the van away from the burning station wagon.

Police say it didn't appear alcohol was involved. They're still investigating the cause.

None of the victims was immediately identified. White says all passengers - two adults and three children - in the station wagon were killed. One adult in the van was killed.

Police say the van belongs to the group Refuge for Women, which tries to help steer women away from the adult entertainment industry.
