A two-vehicle accident in Reno County has claimed the lives of three men.

The accident happened just before noon Sunday on Yoder Road just southeast of Hutchinson.

Captain Steve Lutz with the Reno County Sheriff's Department says one of the vehicles most likely crossed the center line and collided with the other vehicle head-on.

First responders to the scene say all three men, two passengers in one truck and the driver of the other vehicle, were pronounced dead at the scene. Captain Lutz says he does not believe wind played a factor in the crash.

The names of the victims have not been released at this time and the accident remains under investigation.
