3 dead in crash on icy bridge in south Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

COLBERT, Okla. (AP) _ The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says three people were killed in a multiple-vehicle crash on an icy bridge connecting Oklahoma and Texas.

The highway patrol says the crash happened Sunday night on the U.S. 69/U.S. 75 bridge crossing the Red River. According to a preliminary report, 40-year-old Juan Garcia was driving an SUV with eight other passengers when he lost control of his vehicle on the icy bridge.

The highway patrol says Garcia struck the inside railing of the bridge, then bounced across the roadway and struck the outside bridge railing. His SUV was then struck by two oncoming tractor-trailers.

Garcia was killed in the crash, along with a passenger, 70-year-old Anita Lucio Mayorga. An unidentified juvenile passenger was also killed in the crash. All three were from Miami (my-AM'-uh) Okla.
