Temple, OK_Two people died in a fiery crash Thursday afternoon in Temple. 

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said the driver was heading south on State Highway 5 around 4pm when the vehicle left the right side of the road, went into a ditch and hit a culvert near South Boundary Road.  The vehicle caught fire on impact. 

Witnesses were able to pull two passengers from the vehicle, but were unable to rescue the driver. 

A 16-year-old girl survived the crash, identified as Regan Anderson, of Temple.  She was taken by helicopter to a trauma center in Oklahoma City, where she was listed in critical condition, with injuries to her head, arm, and legs, as well as internal injuries.

The driver and an unidentified passenger were both pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators have not determined what caused the driver to go off the highway.
