Blakeslee, one of the nation's most honored and widely read science and medical reporters during three decades as chief science writer of The Associated Press, has died. He was 83. Blakeslee died Sunday night at North Shore University Hospital on Long Island after a yearlong battle with cancer, said his wife, Virginia. Blakeslee was the middle generation in a family line of science reporters. His Pulitzer Prize-winning father, Howard, was the AP's first science editor; his daughter, Sandra Blakeslee, is a regular contributor to The New York Times. Blakeslee joined the AP in 1939 and took over the science desk in New York when his father died in 1952. Around that-time he began produc Head-on crash kills 5, injures one critically From Associated Press and Courier-Journal dispatches HOPE, Ind.

Teresa Miller and her three children were on their way home to North Vernon from church in Hope when their car swerved from the southbound to the northbound lanes of Ind. 9 and hit another car head-on, police said. Three people in one car and two people in the other died. "It was a straight stretch of road, weather was excellent and visibility was not a problem, so at this point we're not sure what the cause of the accident was," Bartholomew County Sheriff's Deputy Todd Noblitt said. Miller, 30, died in the car and son Bryan Miller, 10, died a few hours later at Columbus Regional Hospital. Shawn Miller, 7, died about midnight Sunday at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where his 11-year-old brother, Joshua Miller, was in critical condition yesterday.

In addition to his wife and daughter, survivors include a son, Dennis, and three grandchildren. Kathy Brunni, of Hope were driving the other car. Both died. "There did not appear to be any skid marks left by the vehicle, so it was a hard impact," Noblitt said.

Her survivors include her husband, David Miller; her father and stepmother, Mr. and Mrs. James W. Spears; her mother and stepfather, Dora Jane and Gary Leonard; a brother; and two sisters.
