OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Two people have died following a wrong way crash in Oklahoma City Thursday night.

According to officials, the accident happened in the eastbound lanes on I-40 near Pennsylvania Avenue around 9 p.m. on Thursday.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the likely cause of this accident was a driver continuously using the left lane instead of just passing slower vehicles.

The driver of the first vehicle was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of I-40 while a second driver was traveling eastbound in the eastbound lanes. The first car struck the second, causing it to spin into a concrete barrier in the center median.

The accident closed the westbound I-44 off-ramp overnight but the ramp reopened around 12:30 a.m. Friday morning, according to the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

No more information is available at this time.
