Officers on the scene say that at roughly 3:40 p.m. Oklahoma Highway Patrol received a call about a single-car accident involving a tree.

Sapulpa Police, Fire Department and Creek County Sheriff’s Office also responded, all with multiple crews on the scene, where they found three deceased and one in serious condition, who has been transported to the hospital.

None of the victims’ names have been released yet, but the car was described by OHP as a “small, red, four-passenger vehicle,” possible a sedan.

Officers say the car left the road for an unknown reason and struck a tree at a high rate of speed.

This is a developing story.
