STILLWATER, Okla. -- Students at Oklahoma State University are mourning the loss of three classmates who died over the Labor Day weekend in a fatal car wreck near Ponca City.

Christian Wright, 21-year-old Kelli Mellon and 21-year-old Chris Bellmer died in the crash.

Wright, the driver, hit another car head-on while trying to pass a truck. The crash left six injured, and three dead, according to authorities.

A campus candlelight vigil for the three students that died in the fatal crash is scheduled for Wednesday, September 10 at 8 p.m. on the Library Lawn.

"For many of them, it's the first time they've experienced a significant loss like this," OSU counselor Suznne Burks said.

Stephen Sellers, the only survivor in the students' truck, was listed in serious condition.
