WYANDOTTE, Okla. (AP) - A Missouri man was among the four people killed over the weekend in a head-on collision in northeastern Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the crash happened Sunday afternoon on U.S. 60 near Wyandotte in Ottawa County. Authorities say a Ford Mustang driven by 39-year-old George Willis Jr. of Webb City, Mo., crossed the center line and crashed into a pickup truck traveling west.
Troopers say four people were pinned inside the wreckage for an hour and a half. The highway patrol says Willis was killed in the crash along with two of his passengers, 14-year-old Drake Cobb and 13-year-old Syrrena Sanderson. Both were from Garland, Texas.
Authorities say a 7-year-old girl is in serious condition at a Springfield, Mo., hospital.
Also killed in the crash was the pickup's passenger, 19-year-old Samantha Delamatter of Fairland, Okla.
