NOWATA, Okla. – Five people are dead and a child is fighting for their life after a head-on crash Saturday.

The crash happened on Highway 169, just a few miles south of Nowata, Okla., which is in the northeastern part of the state.

Officers say a Chevy Malibu was in the northbound lane, crossed the center line, and hit a Kia Soul head-on.

Four adults were pronounced dead at the scene, and a child died on the way to the hospital.

Another child is in critical condition.

It took rescue crews more than an hour to get the victims out of the wreckage.

The reason the driver of the Chevy crossed the center line is still under investigation..wreck
