TECUMSEH, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities have identified the victims of a fiery, triple-fatality accident on Oklahoma Highway 9 in Pottawatomie County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 43-year-old Renda Lewis and 19-year-old Shelby Lewis of Allen died at the scene of the accident about 3:50 p.m. Sunday. Authorities earlier identified the other victim as 46-year-old Tracy Dawn Craig of Noble.

Troopers say Renda Lewis was driving a vehicle east on the highway and a sport utility vehicle driven by Craig was headed west when Craig's SUV crossed the center line and struck Renda Lewis' vehicle head on. The patrol says Lewis' vehicle burst into flames.

The patrol says the occupants of both vehicles were pinned several hours before they could be freed.
