5 Minn. family members killed in motor home crash in Kansas weren't wearing seatbelts
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) ' Authorities say five members of a Minnesota family killed in a motor home crash in northeast Kansas weren't wearing seatbelts.
The crash, which also injured 13 people, occurred Sunday morning on Interstate 35 when a Freightliner box truck pulling a trailer hit a guardrail and a concrete bridge rail before crashing into a ravine near Williamsburg, about 70 miles southwest of Kansas City, Mo.
The Kansas Highway Patrol said all 18 people were inside the vehicle, which had living quarters inside.
The patrol's report on the crash says all five of the family members killed in the accident weren't wearing restraints. The patrol report also said only two of the injured, including the 17-year-old driver, were wearing seatbelts.
At least two of the injured were in critical condition Monday.
