Motor home accident injures, kills members of large family

A large extended family of 18 relatives became victims of a tragic auto accident over the weekend after the 17 year-old driver of the motor home lost control and crashed into a ravine in Kansas. The family was on their way back home to Jordan, Minnesota after spending spring break in Texas.

Five family members were killed in the crash, ranging in age from ten to 25 years-old, and 13 others were seriously injured. According to authorities, none of the deceased were wearing their seatbelts.

Investigators have not been able to determine the exact cause for the crash. The teenage driver, who remains in critical condition, had the proper license to operate the motor home and family friends say he was an experienced driver.

Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of those affected by this terrible accident.
