Three Dead, Six Hurt After Crash At Oklahoma-Texas Border

OKLAHOMA/TEXAS BORDER (CBSDFW.COM) – At least three people were killed and six others hurt Sunday night after an accident involving two 18-wheelers and an SUV on the border bridge between Texas and Oklahoma.

One of the dead is a child.  All of the victims came from the SUV, authorities said.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said the crash happened on the southbound lanes of US Highway 75 over the Red River around 9 p.m.

The names and ages of the victims was not immediately known Sunday.

Lt. Scott Hampton with the OHP says the southbound bridge was expected to be shut down for several hours while troopers investigate the crash.

An accident reconstruction team will likely be sent to the site later this week to further investigate.

Our Texoma sister station KXII-TV sent a crew to the scene.

CBS 11 will post updates as they become available.
