CHANDLER, Okla (KFOR) – A crash in Chandler leaves two people dead and two others in the hospital around 5:15 pm on Saturday near 890 east road. Police believe speed and alcohol were a factor. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Chevy Tahoe was driving west on 890 road when they missed a curve. The report says the car flipped three and a half times before landing upside down.

Highway Patrol says the driver and a 15-year-old passenger were thrown from the car and died where the car crashed. The other two passengers, a 27-year-old and a 15-year-old were badly hurt and taken to the hospital.

KFOR spoke with a neighbor who took photos showing the car flipped over and police blocking the road. The neighbor says the road was closed for at least 3 hours.

Highway Patrol says the crash was caused by the driver being under the influence, unsafe speeds, and that all four people in the car were not wearing a seat belt.
