Three people died after a head-on collision in Leavenworth County.
The Kansas Highway Patrol says the accident happened Sunday night on Kansas 32 between Lawrence and Linwood.
The patrol’s accident report says a car driven by 30-year-old Mathew Nuzik of Basehor tried to pass a car and collided head-on with another vehicle. Nuzik died at the scene.
The two people in the second car, 21-year-old Daniel Henry of Edwardsville and 22-year-old Stephanie Conn of Bonner Springs, were killed.
The accident happened at an intersection that has seen more traffic since a new intersection on the Kansas Turnpike in Leavenworth County opened earlier this year.
