The Kansas Highway Patrol says four people are dead and another was seriously injured in an accident on the Kansas Turnpike. The accident happened Wednesday night in Sumner County about 2 miles north of the Oklahoma border.

The patrol says the accident occurred when the driver of a 2006 Dodge Magnum tried to do a U-turn in front of a semitrailer. Two people were thrown from the vehicle and two others were pinned inside. All four died at the scene.

The driver has been identified as 39-year-old Michael Minor of Sedgwick. The names of the three passengers who died in the crash have been released: 23-year-old Lindsey Shain, 27-year-old Chad Kingsley and 22-year-old Johnette Grimes. The three passengers were residents of Wichita.

A fifth passenger, 27-year-old Michael Meyer, was injured in the crash and flown to a Wichita hospital. He is currently listed in serious condition at Wesley Medical Center.

"We've lost our group," said Damon Carey, who was a friend of all of the victims. "There are seven children who have lost a mom or a dad... or both."

The driver of the semi is 34-year-old Miguel Guzman-Hernandez, also of Wichita. He was not seriously hurt.
