Six teenage girls die in collision between car and lorry in Oklahoma | US News

Police say six high school students were killed in a two-vehicle collision in southern Oklahoma.

The teenagers, all girls, were in a car that collided with an articulated lorry around 12:30 p.m. in Tishomingo, about 100 miles (161 km) southwest of Oklahoma City.

Tishomingo Public Schools Superintendent Bobby Waitman said the students attend the local high school.

“Our hearts are broken, and we grieve with our students and staff,” Mr Waitman said.

He added that counselors are always available to talk to students.

Sarah Stewart, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety, said she did not have details about the crash or the exact ages of the students.

The incident took place at the intersection of Highways 377, 22 and 99 in Johnston County, according to the Johnston Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office.

Pictures from the scene of the crash show a nearly destroyed black car with a pink steering wheel amid the wreckage.

Tishomingo, a town of about 3,000 people, is located in the south central part of Oklahoma.
