OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Two church vans carrying Truman State
University students home from a spring-break trip are involved in
an accident early today.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says no one was killed when a car
going the wrong way on Interstate 35 in north Oklahoma City slammed
into the vans head-on.
But the driver of the car was flown to a nearby hospital with
extensive injuries and at least 17 van passengers were also taken
in for treatment.
Allison Schmidt, one of the students, says most of the van
passengers were asleep when the accident occurred.
The vans are from the Liberty Christian Church in Milan
while the university is in Kirksville. The group was
returning from a trip to south Texas.
