Friday's storms will have the potential to generate hail in the morning, and hail plus wind and tornadoes later in the day. Flash flooding is also possible with torrential rain in spots. Much improved weather moves in for the weekend. Remember, never drive through floodwater - turn around, don't drown!
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says at least seven people are dead after a head-on collision near the town of Elmwood in the Oklahoma Panhandle.
OHP Capt. Chris West says a Chevrolet Suburban traveled left of center along Highway 412 early Wednesday and slammed head-on into a van. West says early reports indicate both drivers were killed, along with five others. He says the accident is still being investigated, but that the Suburban was traveling at a high rate of speed.
Elmwood is located in Beaver County in the Oklahoma Panhandle, less than 10 miles from the Texas state line.
Both lanes of Highway 412 were closed at 6:20 a.m. and traffic was rerouted onto county roads.
