OTTAWA COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Four people died of massive injuries suffered in a two-vehicle accident in Ottawa County, located in the northeastern part of Oklahoma, Sunday afternoon.

The accident occurred on state highway 60, three miles east of Wyandotte, around 4:20 p.m.

According to a report by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, a 2003 Ford Mustang driven by 39-year-old George Willis was heading eastbound on US 60 when the vehicle started to veer to the left for an unknown reason. The Mustang struck a 2000 Ford Ranger pickup, driven by 22-year-old Spencer Anderson, head on.

The OHP report did not indicate where the vehicles ended up upon their collision. Both vehicles had passengers and all of the people involved were pinned for over an hour before being freed.

Willis was pronounced dead at the scene, as were two other passengers in his car, 14-year-old Drake Cobb and 13-year-old Syrrena Sanderson.

A third passenger in the Mustang, 7-year-old Maryssa Sanderson, was transported via medical helicopter to Cox South Medical in Springfield, MO. She is listed in serious condition.

Inside the Ford Ranger, Anderson was flown by medical helicopter to Freeman Hospital in Joplin, MO. Where he was treated and released. A passenger in that vehicle, 19-year-old Samantha Delamatter, was pronounced also dead at the scene.

Troopers say Willis and Cobb in the Mustang were wearing seatbelts, but both Anderson girls were not wearing their belts.  In the Ranger, Anderson was wearing his seatbelt, Delamatter was not.

OHP Troopers are still investigating the cause of this accident.
