GREENSBURG, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Highway Patrol says two Oklahoma residents have died in a collision between their car and a tractor-trailer.

The accident happened around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday near the southwest Kansas community of Greensburg.

The patrol says the northbound car failed to yield at the intersection of U.S. 183 and U.S. 54 and was hit by the westbound semi.

Authorities identified those killed as the car’s 35-year-old driver, Aurora Diane Balch, and her 27-year-old passenger, Donald Anthony Barrs, both of Weatherford, Okla. The Highway Patrol says neither wore a seatbelt.
