BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) -- A driver going the wrong way on a highway crashed head-on into another car early Friday, killing three Bowling Green State University sorority sisters and critically injuring two others.

The accident happened about 2:30 a.m. on Interstate 75 south of Toledo, just miles from the campus.

Wood County Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn said the accident occurred at a crest in the highway and he doubts the northbound student who was driving had any warning.

"I don't think the college girls ever saw it coming. Nothing they could have done to avoid the crash," Wasylyshyn said.

"The college girls apparently did nothing wrong. They were just driving northbound and a woman driving in the opposite direction in the wrong way on the roadway hit them head-on."

The university said the students were members of Alpha Xi Delta sorority. The campus was working with police and hospital officials to notify families of the victims.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said the students were going north on the interstate on the way to the Detroit airport.

The university's spring break begins Saturday.
