MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say five people were killed in two separate head-on crashes in central Ohio.

Three were killed Sunday night when an SUV crashed head-on into another vehicle carrying a family of four on a dark road in southern Union County, northwest of Columbus.

Deputies were still investigating the crash, and no names have been released.

The accident came hours after two people were killed and another was critically injured in a head-on crash in Fairfield County, southeast of Columbus. The patrol said two women in a Honda Accord were killed.

NEW BUFFALO, Mich. (AP) — A movie filming in southwestern Michigan has been approved for a state incentive.

The Michigan Film Office says "The Middle Distance" is being awarded $39,000 on $145,000 of projected in-state expenditures.

The movie is set to film this month in New Buffalo, Three Oaks and Grand Beach. It's to feature local diners and landscapes.

"The Middle Distance" director Patrick Underwood says the community support for the film "has been overwhelming."

In the movie, Neil Mercer travels back home to the Midwest for the first time in years to help sell his estranged parents' cottage. He later finds himself marooned with his brother's fiancee.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Two young children died Sunday from injuries they sustained in a house fire that killed two of their siblings and their parents, an Indianapolis Fire Department spokeswoman said.

Miranda Guerra, 14, and her 6-year-old brother, Fuentes, were pronounced dead Sunday afternoon at Riley Hospital for Children, Capt. Rita Reith said.

The extended family was working with the hospital for possible organ procurement, Reith said.

"We believe this to be the largest single loss of life for a family due to fire in the IFD service district," Reith said.

The two children had been considered in "extreme critical" condition following the fire, which happened Saturday morning on Indianapolis' east side.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio's attorney general has awarded $1 million in new grant funding to 25 rape crisis centers across the state.

Attorney General Mike DeWine says 23 agencies will each receive a grant of more than $36,000 to help survivors of sexual assault.

A statement from DeWine says the grants mark the first use of Ohio's new Rape Crisis Program Trust Fund. He says the agencies meet the services defined by Ohio's core standards for rape crisis programs.

Some agencies receiving the grants include Women Helping Women in Cincinnati, the YWCA of Northwest Ohio in Toledo and the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center.

DeWine says a statewide training grant of $95,000 was awarded to the Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence. The agency in Cleveland is a federally recognized statewide sexual assault coalition.
