BENNINGTON, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Highway Patrol says a Topeka a man and his 18-year-old daughter have been killed in a head-on collision.

The patrol says 18-year-old Emma Jo Pisocki and her 41-year-old father Jason D. Pisocki were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which occurred Friday about 3 miles east of Bennington in Ottawa County.

The highway patrol says a vehicle moved into an oncoming lane of traffic to avoid a vehicle that was parked along the side of the roadway, partially in the lane of travel. The passing vehicle then collided with the vehicle the Pisockis were in.

The highway patrol says the driver of the other car is hospitalized in Salina.

The patrol says all three victims were wearing seat belts when the crash occurred.
