Medical Examiner Will Need To Identify Victims In Fiery Crash Near Antlers

Posted:
PUSHMATAHA COUNTY, OK -- We're still waiting to learn the identities of three people killed in a crash that shut down a major Texoma road for 10 hours.

Troopers say the Indian Nation Turnpike was reopened around 11 p.m. on Friday.

Around 1 p.m., two 18-wheelers collided and burst into flames when troopers say one of them tried to make an illegal U-turn at mile marker 14 near Antlers.

Both drivers and a passenger died.

One of the trucks came from Muskogee and OHP has an idea who the victims are, but because of the fire it will be up the state Medical Examiner's office to make a formal identification, Lt. Robert Darst said.
