MIAMI, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says that two people, not three, were killed when an SUV jumped a highway bridge guardrail and plummeted more than 80 feet into an icy river.
Ottawa County Sheriff Terry Durborow said earlier Thursday that three people died when the vehicle veered off the Interstate 44 bridge and into the Spring River below.
But the Oklahoma Highway Patrol says only two died and the state Medical Examiner's office says it has received only two bodies from the crash. The discrepancy could not immediately be resolved.
At least three people were taken to hospitals with injuries.
