JEFFERSON COUNTY, OK (KSWO) – Four people and an unborn child died in a head-on collision near the Stephens/Jefferson county line Friday night.

The crash happened a half a mile south of the Stephens/Jefferson county line, and two miles north of Addington around 9 p.m. A Chevrolet pickup was heading south on Highway 81 and a Toyota pickup was heading north when the Chevy struck the Toyota head-on, and the Chevy caught fire.

The driver of the Chevrolet pickup, Gerardo Marquez from Duncan, and his two passengers, Daniel Garcia from Duncan and Micaila Scism from Comanche, died at the scene according to OHP. A 10-year-old boy from Wichita Falls, who was a passenger in the Toyota pickup, also died at the scene. A passenger in the Toyota who survived was pregnant, but her unborn child did not survive.

Marquez and Scism were pinned for 45 minutes until first responders used the Jaws of Life to free them.

The driver of the Toyota pickup, a woman, a 9-year-old and a 5-year-old were all taken to the hospital. All four of them were taken to OU Medical Center and were alert and talking by Monday.

Highway 81, between Addington and the Stephens/Jefferson county line, was closed until 2 a.m. Saturday.
