2 killed in southeast Kansas when car slams into tractor

(AP) — Authorities in southeastern Kansas say two people were killed when the car they were in slammed into a farm combine harvester on a road and erupted in flames. 

The Cowley County Sheriff’s Office says the crash happened Sunday on a county road just north of Winfield when the southbound car hit the combine, went underneath the farm implement and caught fire. 

Officials say two people in the car died. Sheriff David Falletti told KAKE-TV that the two killed have not yet been identified, and autopsies have been ordered. 

The driver of the combine was not injured.
