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.
