Police are looking for a third car and four unidentified teenagers in connection with a two-car crash that killed six persons and injured nine others Saturday night. Witnesses said the teenagers were in a fast-moving sedan that pulled out of a service station onto U.S. 54 without stopping, forcing an eastbound Oklahoma car to swerve into the path of a westbound Kansas car. The third car pulled off the road and stopped for a moment after the collision, then sped away, witnesses said. The witnesses were at the service station three miles west of Liberal on U.S. 54, near the Oklahoma border. Three woman and eight children were in the eastbound car from Tyrone, Okla., 10 miles from Liberal. Two Liberal men and their wives were in the other car, on their way to Hooker, Okla.
