ROFF, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says two people are dead after a three-vehicle crash in south central Oklahoma.

The highway patrol says the crash happened at about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday on State Highway 1 in Pontotoc County.

A preliminary report says a car driven by 22-year-old Lauren Hatton crossed the center line and crashed into a trailer being towed by a pickup truck. Hatton's car then struck a second pickup head-on.

The highway patrol says the driver of the second pickup, 47-year-old Boyd Bolin of Collinsville, was trapped in his vehicle for an hour and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hatton was taken to a Purcell hospital where she was pronounced dead.

A 2-month-old boy in Hatton's car was taken to an Oklahoma City hospital in stable condition.
