BRYAN COUNTY, OK -- Troopers say four people are dead and one more is critically injured after a collision near a bridge in Bryan County. 


Oklahoma Highway Patrol confirms three adults and one child were killed in the accident on US 70 at Ranger Station road. 

Trooper Steve Nabors says it all happened around four Sunday afternoon on the east side of Roosevelt Bridge when he saw a eastbound car cross the center line and collide head on with another passing vehicle. 

"I've been in this profession for 35 years and I've seen several like this and it ranks up there," said Nabors. "When you see an incident like this occur right in front of you, it's just kinda unbelievable even with the number of years that I've been doing this."

Troopers estimate Highway 70 could be closed down for several hours as crews process and clear the scene. 

The other child that was injured was flown to a children's hospital in Dallas in critical condition.
