6 killed, 13 injured when van and semi collide in Colorado

SEDGWICK, Colo. (AP) — Six men were killed and 13 people were injured after a semitrailer truck collided with a van on an icy highway.

The crash Monday appeared to be a rear-end accident, the Colorado State Patrol said. The vehicles slid off I-76 about 33 miles northeast of Sterling and the van rolled.

The van was carrying 20 people believed to be Mexican citizens from the Phoenix area to Chicago, authorities said. All of the dead and injured were riding in the van.

Four women and an 8-month-old baby were among those hurt.

Four of the van's passengers were in stable condition, and two others were in serious but stable condition, hospital officials said early Tuesday. The conditions of the other injured passengers were not available.
