Three young men died in the wreck that was investigated by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. They were in a GMC Yukon that missed a turn, crashed through a guardrail and down a bluff at about 9:30 p.m. A passerby called in the wreck after seeing a damaged guard rail along Blue Bluff Harbor.

The SUV landed on its top in about 12 feet of water. Divers braved very cold temperatures to recover the young mens' bodies in a two-day effort.

Dr. Andrea Wiens listed the cause of the three deaths as multiple blunt impact injuries and drowning as a result of an automobile wreck.
