OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Authorities say four people were killed in an early morning wrong-way crash on Interstate 40 in Oklahoma City.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the collision happened shortly after 2 a.m. Friday when a pickup truck driving the wrong direction crashed into an oncoming car. The highway patrol says two people in the truck were killed, along with two people in the car.

The crash happened at eastbound I-40 and Oklahoma City Boulevard.

Troopers say they are still investigating why the driver was traveling in the wrong direction. The wreck shut down some lanes of the interstate for several hours, but they reopened at about 5:30 a.m. Friday.
