MIAMI, Oklahoma -- The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says it plans to recover the pickup truck involved the fatal Will Rogers Turnpike crash that happened on February 3, 2011 on either Saturday or Sunday, weather permitting.

The crash left three people dead; Leonor Alcano, 31, Irma Garcia, 37, and Douglas Monzon, 22, and injured five others.

The OHP says it will use a crane to lift the truck out of the water and onto the bank of the Spring River.

Troopers say to do this, they will need to close the inside westbound lane of the Will Rogers Turnpike.

The investigation into the cause of the crash at I-44 mile marker 322 continues.
