OKLAHOMA (CBSDFW.COM/AP) - Two teenagers from North Richland Hills were killed Friday evening when a tractor-trailer rig’s dual wheels detached from it and crossed into oncoming traffic; crashing into the windshield of their jeep. The driver, also a teenager, was critically injured. A fourth passenger was treated and released. It happened on Interstate 40 just east of Weatherfordi in Caddo County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 15-year-old Abigail Key and 17-year-old Chance Clifton died of massive head injuries. They were pinned in the car for about an hour and a half before being freed by the Hydro Fire Department, according to a trooper’s report. Both were Birdville Independent School District students.

Cheerleaders from Birdville ISD invited people via their Twitter page to a prayer vigil Saturday night at 9 p.m. at the Birdville Fine Arts/Athletics Complex.

Birdville ISD released the following statement: Birdville ISD and the Birdville High School community are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of  two of our students in the accident Friday evening in Oklahoma. Our thoughts and prayers go out to their families, and to the family of the two BHS students who were also injured in the accident.

The 32-year-old driver of the semi wasn’t injured.
