DAVIS, Okla. (KFOR) – Authorities say one driver has been arrested following a deadly crash involving five semi-trucks on Wednesday.
Around 12:15 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, emergency crews were called to a crash along northbound I-35 at mile marker 59, near Wynnewood.
Officials say six vehicles, including four semi-trucks, were stopped due to traffic congestion in the construction zone.
However, investigators say another tractor trailer, driven by 38-year-old Tony Aghaji-Enweremadu, failed to stop and slammed into the other vehicles.
Authorities say the driver and passenger of a 2016 Honda Accord were pinned for approximately five hours before being freed by the Wynnewood Fire Department.
Officials say the driver and passenger of the Honda were both pronounced dead at the scene.
At this point, the victims have not been identified.
Aghaji-Enweremadu was taken to a hospital in Texas, where he was treated and released.
He was then arrested on two counts of manslaughter.
