COLBERT, Okla. -- Two people were killed in a fiery head-on collision on US 69/75 in Colbert late Tuesday night.

Investigators said a northbound vehicle driven by Ramone Flores of Cartwright, Oklahoma, crossed over into the southbound lanes. He struck a vehicle driven by Kurt Horn of Plano, Texas.

Both men were pronounced dead at the scene.

Colbert police said an investigating officer noticed a strong smell of alcohol in the vehicle of 75-year-old Flores, but police are awaiting the results of an autopsy to determine whether he was legally intoxicated at the time of the crash.
