Two people are dead after a crash Saturday afternoon in Bryan County that troopers are investigating as a road rage incident.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers say the collision happened just west of Durant on Highway 70 at approximately 5 p.m..
They say it involved three cars, killing two passengers in separate cars and injuring four others.

Troopers say the driver who caused the crash, Ralph McEnnerney, 52, of Kingston, was intoxicated and left the scene.
An accident report states McEnnerney hit another eastbound vehicle with deliberate intent, knocking it into the westbound lane where it then struck a westbound vehicle.
47-year-old Randy Kinyon of Henderson, Texas, and 46-year-old Shelley Mayo of Caddo were killed in the crash.
Of the four others injured, two are in stable condition and two were treated and released from local hospitals.
McEnnerney, who was not injured in the crash, was followed by witnesses and stopped by Durant police.
He was booked into the Bryan County jail on two counts of murder and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
Court records show in May McEnnerney pleaded guilty in Marshall County for driving under the influence of alcohol.
