Families remember loved ones killed in triple fatal crash

JOHNSTON COUNTY, Okla. (KXII) - Troopers say it was just before 3 a.m. Saturday when a Lincoln Navigator on a county road collided with a pickup driving East on Highway 7, five miles south of Mill Creek.

Inside the Navigator were four people, driver 19-year-old Krysta Muniz, her father 46-year-old Vernon Muniz, 30-year-old Skye Wyrick and 29-year-old Jessica Wilson all from Tishimingo.

Krysta Muniz and Wilson were flown to two different hospitals.

But Vernon Muniz and Wyrick were pronounced dead at the scene along with the driver of the pick up Chase Pitmon.

"There's times when it doesn't seem real and then there's times when already it feels like it's been forever since you've seen them," Regina Brumley said.

Pitmon's Aunt Regina Brumley says the Sulphur Graduate loved being outdoors - fishing, hunting and working in the hay fields.

She says Pitmon attended Southern Oklahoma Technology Center where he studied Diesel Mechanics and worked as a welder for a company in Madill.

He would have been 21-years-old next Tuesday.

"You always think that you have tomorrow to do and you expect it because their young - you've still got a long time and I think that makes it worse because they didn't get to live their life to their fullest," Regina said.

The Muniz family says Krysta was out of Intensive care Sunday and is recovering from a few broken bones and several scratches.

They say Vernon Loved being with his family, watching his kids play sports and cheering on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

They tell us their family is praying for all those impacted by Saturday's tragic crash.

"Have faith in God and get their strength from him because if it wasn't for him we wouldn't be able to make through ours and nobody is going to be able to make it through this without him now," Regina said.

Troopers are waiting on toxicology results to determine the condition of the drivers.
