LOGAN COUNTY, Okla. (KFOR) – Three people died in a fiery, multiple-vehicle crash in Logan County that involved two semi-trucks and resulted in a stretch of Interstate 35 South being closed down.

Officials with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol identified the victims as Jason Lingle, 38-year-old Joshua Michael Hall, and 41-year-old Armando Espinosa, Jr.

“One semi was hooked to another semi to pull it out of the roadway, it appears, and in doing so another vehicle struck the two semis being towed and caused a fire, and unfortunately there were three fatalities in this crash tonight,” said OHP Trooper Eric Foster.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol closed I-35 South from mile marker 151 to mile marker 146 following the crash.

“Local law enforcement and crews are detouring traffic off at Seward Rd. (mm 151) to Sooner Rd and back on at Waterloo Rd. (mm 146),” the news release states. “Crews estimate the closure lasting into the overnight hours. Drivers should expect delays or avoid the area and locate an alternate route.”
