State patrol: 5 children, 1 adult dead after van collides with truck in Colorado
DENVER (AP) ' Five children and an adult were killed when a van carrying children collided with a tractor-trailer rig in eastern Colorado.
State officials say some of the children in the van were adopted or in foster care and live at a group home registered with the state. It wasn't immediately clear whether they were among the dead.
Seven other people who were in the van were taken to area hospitals after the crash Thursday.
The State Patrol says the adult who died was driving the van. The driver of the truck suffered serious injuries.
