Three Tulsa men died Thursday as a result of a three-vehicle crash that occurred when one driver attempted to pass a truck and hit a car head-on in Rogers County, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.

Owen McCool, 29, Clifford Colyer IV, 21, and Garold Benner, 23, all were killed in a crash, which occurred about 4:15 p.m. on Oklahoma 266 — or 46th Street North — just east of 145th East Ave., the OHP reported.

McCool was driving a 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe east when he attempted to pass a tractor-trailer rig and ran head-on into a westbound 2003 Chevrolet Malibu driven by Colyer, according to the OHP. The impact knocked the Tahoe into the truck’s trailer, and the SUV overturned.
