Sand-Filled Tractor Hits Van, Kills 6

MOORE HAVEN, Fla. (AP) -- Six men in a van were killed when a tractor-trailer loaded with sand hit their vehicle Monday in south- central Florida.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the tractor-trailer ran through a stop sign around 6:30 a.m. and struck the van's right side.

Both vehicles rolled over and landed on the shoulder of state Road 29, a two-lane highway about 60 miles east of Fort Myers.
