QUAPAW, Okla. (AP) — Four people, including two children, were killed in a two-vehicle collision in northeastern Oklahoma Friday, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
Charlsee Eberly, 30, of Miami; Kaitlyn Kibel, 28, of Quapaw; a 7-year-old girl and 10-year-old boy whose names were not released died as a result of injuries suffered in the crash, according to an OHP report.
The collision occurred on U.S. 69 just after 8: 30 p.m. Friday near Quapaw, about 90 miles (145 kilometers) northeast of Tulsa.
Three children aged 3, 7, and 8 were hospitalized in stable condition Saturday due to injuries suffered in the crash, according to the report said.
