— Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers have identified two people killed Friday in a head-on collision.

Nikisha Lynn Farris, 34, and William Othel Maddox, 57, both of Oklahoma City, were identified as two of the three who were killed in the accident, troopers said.

About 8:15 p.m. Friday, a car Farris was driving was heading in the wrong direction — northbound on a southbound lane of U.S. 81 — about a half-mile south of Bison, troopers said. Maddox was riding as Farris' passenger. Her car struck the car of Antonio Medina Jr., 23, of Enid, who was traveling southbound.

All three were pronounced dead at the scene.

Medina was wearing a seat belt, but it is unknown whether Farris or Maddox were, troopers said.
