KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) ' A friend says members of a Minnesota family of motocross enthusiasts were taking a vacation to see a race when their motor home crashed in northeast Kansas, killing five family members and injuring 13 other people.
Mary Jo Marks tells The Associated Press that she and her husband live about a mile away from the family. She says Pauline Kerber home-schooled the children until several years ago. Kerber's late husband, Glen, operated an auto store on the family property.
Marks says the family lives about a half-mile from the Scott County fairgrounds, which hosts motocross races. She says the family planned to spend spring break on a big family motocross trip.
Associated Press reporters Gretchen Ehlke in Milwaukee and Margaret Stafford in Kansas City, Mo., contributed to this report.
