Two semi tractor-trailers collided head-on late Thursday atop Bois D'Arc Creek Bridge on Oklahoma 99, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.

The highway was closed a 7:15 p.m. and had not reopened by early Friday. The time of the accident was not immediately available.

The drivers of the first two tractor-trailers were pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said.

The occupants of the pickup and the other semi were taken to an Ada hospital.

Ada firefighters controlled a diesel spill on the bridge, authorities said.
