OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Authorities say that two people were killed during a head-on collision on Interstate 40 in Oklahoma City.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a truck being driven by 91-year-old Montrel Shipley was traveling the wrong way on the freeway at around 3:30 a.m. on Saturday when it collided with a car driven by 45-year-old Paul Flemings. Shipley and Flemings were both pronounced dead at the scene by authorities.
