TOWANDA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas Turnpike Authority says nine people from Amarillo, Texas, were injured when the passenger van they were in crashed on the Kansas Turnpike.

Two of the people hurt in the accident Sunday near the Towanda Service area are reported in in critical condition.

The authority says the van carried four men, four women and a 2-month-old girl when it went out of control and overturned after one of the tires lost its tread and the driver slammed on the brakes.

The authority says eight people were taken to Wichita hospitals and another drove to the hospital.
