A local church is reaching out to help victims of a deadly accident on highway 412 earlier this week.

Four people including a pregnant teenager were killed Monday when the driver of an SUV packed with 12 people fell asleep at the wheel. A Pryor church has stepped up to help but now they need some help.

The Hispanic Church of God in Pryor is helping victims with food, clothing and shelter until they are well enough to go back home.

Two of the victims were released from the hospital last night. They're staying at the church while they recover from broken bones. The others have already gone back to Tennessee and Mexico.

Three of the truck’s occupants died when they were thrown from the truck in the crash. They were all teenagers including a 19 year-old who was three months pregnant. Right now, their bodies are at Midtown Tulsa Chapel.

It will cost $10,000 to move them to Mexico, money the family doesn't have.

If you would like to help you can call the Hispanic Church of God at 918 824-2492.
