MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Two people were killed and four Kansas State University students were injured in an accident near Manhattan.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says the head-on collision early Monday on Kansas 18 killed two people from Ogden.
The patrol says a truck carrying four people was going the east in the westbound lanes of Kansas 18 when it hit a car going west. The two people killed were in the car.
WIBW reports (http://bit.ly/Jbw9Q3 ) patrol Lt. Gregory Harkrader says alcohol apparently was a factor in the crash.
The names of those involved have not been released.
The accident closed down parts of Kansas 18 near Manhattan for more than 6 hours before it was reopened about 9:30 a.m.
