Authorities have released the names of three Boy Scouts and their Scout leader who were killed in a head-on collision while driving back to Colorado from a camp in Wyoming.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/ORrQf3 ) that the Woodland Park School District says 16-year-old Paul Kekich, 17-year-old Nick Naples, and 17-year-old Alex Ragan died in Saturday's crash. The boys were students at Woodland Park High School.

Their leader, Richard Kleiner, also died.

The four were traveling in a Honda sports utility vehicle on their way back to Woodland Park, a town ravaged in recent weeks by wildfires. Their vehicle crossed the center line and collided with a motor home.

Wyoming Highway Patrol says a 3-year-old passenger in the motor home also died.

Four others were injured in the crash on Highway 120.
