ROLLA, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say four people have been killed in a head-on crash in central Missouri.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the crash happened Sunday morning when a car drove into the path of a pickup truck on a rural highway about 4 miles south of Rolla.

The patrol says the crash killed the car's driver, 22-year-old Alonzo Moore, of Rolla, and three passengers — 27-year-old Logan Barton, of Salem, 26-year-old Zachary Barton, of Salem, and 25-year-old Andrew Theiss, of Rolla. None of them were wearing seatbelts.

Four people in the truck also were hurt. The driver suffered moderate injuries and a female passenger sustained passenger serious injuries. Two children —aged 6 and 10 — had minor injuries.
