KS Woman, 2 Children Killed in Car Crash on I-70

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas Highway Patrol says a woman and her two children are dead after a car collided with their minivan on Interstate 70 west of Topeka. The crash happened around 3:15 p.m. Saturday when the eastbound car crossed the interstate's grassy median and collided with the westbound minivan.

The patrol says the van's driver, 37-year-old Laura Geske of Salina, was killed along with three-year-old Joy Geske and eight-year-old Joshua Geske. Laura Geske's 41-year-old husband, Jeffrey, and another son, three-year-old Jacob, were taken to a Topeka hospital. The patrol says their injuries don't appear to be life threatening.

The driver of the car, 62-year-old Steven Moore of Topeka, was taken to the same hospital. The patrol says his injuries don't appear to be life threatening.
