Three confirmed dead after trucks caught fire

June 26, 2014

Three people are confirmed dead after two semi trucks collided just west of Antlers this afternoon.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says just after 1 p.m. two 18-wheelers traveling northbound collided near mile marker 16 on the Indian Nation Turnpike.

According to OHP, it appears at this time that one was attempting a turn-a-bout, and the other one was attempting to evade the collision, and they struck each other and caught fire. At this time they report three fatalities.

The names of the victims have not been released. The turnpike remains closed from Hugo to Antlers, as of 5:30 p.m. Thursday.
