BRYAN COUNTY, Okla (KXII) - A two-vehicle collision east of the Roosevelt Bridge left two people dead and two people with severe injuries Friday afternoon.

In one car was 20-year-old Bailey Greenlee, and his wife, Kaylei Greenlee.

Bailey’s mother is Christal Henson.

“My son and daughter-in-law loved each other so much,” Henson said. “I just want everybody to hug their loved ones a little bit tighter. Tomorrow is not promised.

Henson said her son was headed to job interview at the time of the crash. Troopers are still investigating how it happened.

“There was a car going eastbound and a car going westbound, and it’s too early for us at this time to release details about the investigation,” Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Scott Hampton said. “We have our traffic homicide team going to investigate this collision and they will report any findings.”

The crash left the passengers, who were the wives of the drivers, dead.

Henson said her son is currently suffering from spinal injuries and woke up Monday afternoon.

Henson said her son doesn’t know about his wife yet.

“We are worried about my son. He is in stable condition now. He’s had a long road, and he’ll continue to have a long road.”

As Henson waits for the next steps in her son’s recovery, she said she’s grateful for the support from the community.

“Please don’t stop praying for our family, Kaylei’s family, and the other family that was involved.”

This is an ongoing investigation.
