Deadly Car Crash in Wyoming

 THERMOPOLIS, Wyo. (AP) — Authorities say five people were killed and four others were injured when a vehicle returning to Colorado from a Boy Scout camp in northwest Wyoming veered into oncoming traffic and slammed head-on into a motor home.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol says a 3-year-old passenger in the motor home and four people in the other vehicle were killed in the crash on Highway 120 in north-central Wyoming on Saturday morning.

The Honda Element was one of three vehicles taking a group of Boy Scouts back to the Colorado Springs, Colo., area.

The Highway Patrol declined to release any other information Sunday, including the names of the victims.

Hot Springs County Sheriff Lou Falgoust tells The Billings (Mont.) Gazette that the Scouts had been camping around an area known as Pahaska Teepee.
