Eight Dead in Will Roger Turnpike Crash, Oklahoma

Posted By The Dunnion Law Firm || 26-Jun-2009

JUNE 26, 2009 - MIAMI, OK - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is dealing with a major incident on the Will Rogers Turnpike.

The Oklahoma Turnpike Authority tells The News On 6 that eight people were killed in a crash involving five cars and a semi.

Video from SkyNews6 showed a semi sitting on top of a minivan and another smaller car. Rescue crews were using three wreckers to try to pull the truck off of the smaller vehicles.

OHP Lt. George Brown said traffic was stopped because of an earlier crash when the big rig slammed into at least three cars, which then crashed into more vehicles.

So far, the OHP has not released any details on the fatalities, including whether they were in the two vehicles that were crushed under the semi or if they were in some of the other cars.

In addition to the first pile-up, the OHP is working three other wrecks in the area.

Meantime, the Emergency Operation Center was on the scene delivering water to motorists stranded on the turnpike due to the wreck.
