PERRY, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say four people have died and two others were hurt in a head-on crash in northeast Kansas.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the crash happened Sunday afternoon when 56-year-old Ronald Heston, of Oskaloosa, veered off the side of U.S. 24 in his pickup truck, overcorrected and crashed into an oncoming minivan. The crash near Perry killed Heston and three members of a Basehor family who were riding in the minivan.

The victims in the minivan were identified as 35-year-old Travis Askew, 27-year-old Ashley Askew and 6-month-old Haley Askew. Two others in the minivan - a 5-year-old girl and a 3-year-old girl - were taken to a Topeka hospital.
