CHOTEAU, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says six people killed in a head-on auto collision in northeastern Oklahoma were all from Kansas City, Missouri.

The names of the victims – which include at least two children – have not been released.

An OHP report says the victims are 1 and 3-year-old boys, a 32-year-old man, a 34-year-old man, a 31-year-old woman, and a woman whose age was not known.

A juvenile boy whose age was not known was hospitalized in serious condition following the crash.

The OHP report says the seven were in a southbound van on U.S. 69 near Chouteau when the driver lost control on the wet highway shortly before midnight Friday. The van then crossed the median and was struck head-on by a northbound tractor-trailer rig.
