SAPULPA, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Mannford man and two Texans were killed in a head-on collision involving a pickup truck and a car just west of Sapulpa.

Troopers say 36-year-old Carmen Spicer of Mannford, 54-year-old Donald Clift of Amarillo, Texas, and 52-year-old Jana Clift of Amarillo died in the crash about 12:15 p.m. Sunday.

The OHP says the collision occurred on Oklahoma Highway 33 when the westbound pickup driven by Spicer crossed the center line and collided head-on with the eastbound car driven by Donald Clift in which Jana Clift was a passenger.

A report on the crash says it wasn't immediately known why Spicer's truck crossed the center line.

The highway was closed for about two-and-a-half hours after the crash until the wreckage was cleared from the roadway.
