TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – Three people have died following a two-vehicle collision on State Highway 82 near Tahlequah.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 42-year-old Kathleen Zuniga and 51-year-old Jose Morales – both of Porum – and 74-year-old Caroline Hutchins of Tahlequah died of injuries suffered in the Sunday afternoon crash.

A police report says Zuniga was driving a southbound van with Morales as a passenger when she apparently lost control and the van slid across the center line and was struck by a northbound pickup truck in which Hutchins was a passenger.

Zunia and Morales were dead at the scene and Hutchins died later at a hospital.

Another passenger in the van was critically injured and the driver of the pickup was hospitalized in stable condition.
