MINNEOLA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say two people are dead after a pickup truck and tractor-trailer crashed head on in southwest Kansas.

The Kansas Highway Patrol says the truck was headed westbound in an eastbound lane of U.S. 54 on Tuesday morning before colliding with the rig about 8 miles northeast of Minneola. The patrol says the crash killed the truck's driver, 34-year-old Andrew Manning, of Wichita, and a passenger, 27-year-old Ashiona Hollingsworth, of Winfield.

The rig's driver and a passenger were taken to a hospital in Minneola.
