OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Authorities say two people were killed when
a vehicle driving the wrong way on the Kilpartrick Turnpike collided with a car.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 32-year-old Theodore Shepherd of Norman and 20-year-old Erin Swezey of Edmond were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident about 2:20 a.m. Monday in northwest Oklahoma City.
According to an OHP report, Shepherd's sport utility vehicle was headed westbound in an eastbound lane of the turnpike near Meridian
Avenue and struck Swezey's car.
The SUV then overturned, caught fire and came to rest in the outside lane of the highway. Troopers say the driver of a pickup truck struck the SUV due to inattention.
Both Shepherd and Swezey were pinned in their vehicles until firefighters freed them.
