ANADARKO, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says one person was killed and a second was injured in a fiery two-vehicle collision in Caddo County.

Troopers say the collision occurred about 10:30 p.m. Saturday on Oklahoma Highway 9 about one mile west of Anadarko. The patrol says a westbound pickup truck crossed the center line and struck an eastbound vehicle head-on. Both vehicles burst into flames and the pickup truck’s driver was pinned in the wreckage for about four hours.

Troopers say the driver of the pickup died in the collision. The driver’s name was withheld pending notification of relatives. The driver of the second vehicle, a 34-year-old Anadarko woman, was transported to the University of Oklahoma Medical Center in Oklahoma City in fair condition.

The patrol says both drivers were wearing seatbelts.
