UNDATED (AP) _ A 6-year-old boy is one of three people killed in a two car collision Wednesday morning on US Highway 177 in Noble County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says alcohol may played a role in the crash.

Troopers say 6-year-old Kawliga Harvey, 23-year-old Casey Rhodd and 24-year-old Joshua Harvey all of Ponca City were killed about 12:30 Wednesday morning.

Troopers say the three were in an SUV that was hit in the rear by another car as both were northbound on 177 just north of the Cimarron Turnpike. Investigators say the driver of the car that hit the SUV may have been under the influence of alcohol.

A 1-year-old boy and a 4-year-old boy were also in the SUV and are hospitalized in stable condition. The 1-year-old was in a safety seat but the other four were not wearing seat belts and all five were thrown from the SUV as it rolled twice.

The driver of the second car and a passenger were treated and released at a Ponca City hospital.
