OHP releases details on fatal collision

APACHE, Okla._A 16-year-old girl died in a head-on collision Monday morning in extremely foggy conditions on her way to school with friends.

The wreck happened on Highway 62, about 3.5 miles south of Apache near the Comanche-Caddo County line. Oklahoma Highway Patrol says there was a two-car fatality crash, as well as a three-car injury collision. 

The head-on crash involved a 1996 Ford Crown Victoria driven by 33-year-old man from Apache and a 2006 Ford 500 driven by a 17-year-old girl from Elgin. The 17-year-old had two passenger with her, a 16-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl, all students at Apache High.

The man in the Crown Victoria was southbound and the students were northbound on Highway 62 when OHP believes the man crossed over the center line. Both vehicles collided head-on, killing the 16-year-old passenger.

OHP says everyone was wearing seat belts, but the roads were wet and visibility was poor. The other two students in the car are expected to make a full recovery.

As for the three other cars involved, no word on that cause or any injuries.

Apache High School is making help available for grieving students and they plan to have a vigil when the time is right.
