Oklahoma Highway Patrol Capt. Eric Cannaday said Monday that divers attached flotation devices and a tow line to the truck, which careened through a bridge guard rail into Lake Texoma following a collision with a car Thursday.

Officials say the truck was hauling about 27,000 pounds of paint and supplies.

Troopers say the driver of the car died in the crash, and the driver of the truck is presumed dead in the submerged wreckage. Neither person has been identified.

Traffic on the U.S. Highway 70 bridge crossing the lake has been reduced to a single lane.
