MARBLE CANYON, Ariz. (AP) - Three members of an Allen, Texas, family were killed when their van collided head-on with a car on a highway in a remote area of northern Arizona.
   
The Arizona Department of Public Safety identified those killed as 60-year-old Rebecca Simpson Stryker, 56-year-old James Lee Stryker and 16-year-old Travis Stryker.
   
A twin brother of the teenager, 16-year-old Austin Stryker, was seriously injured and hospitalized in Flagstaff.
