OXFORD, Kan. (AP) _ A collision between a trash truck and a
passenger car has left a baby dead and two people hospitalized in
south-central Kansas.

Sumner County Sheriff Darren Chambers tells KWCH-TV that the car
was eastbound on a road in Oxford. That's when it collided with a
northbound trash truck. The sheriff says there are no stop signs or
yield signs at the intersection where the crash occurred around
11:30 a.m. Friday.

Authorities say the infant in the car was killed on impact. A
man and woman in the car were flown to a Wichita hospital with what
were described as critical injuries.

The 73-year-old driver of the track was not hurt.

Oxford is located about 30 miles south of Wichita.
