OKLAHOMA CITY -- Two pedestrians died Monday morning after being struck by a pickup truck on eastbound Interstate 240.

The highway was closed from Pennsylvania to Walker avenues for about two hours after the 5 a.m. wreck, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.

The man and woman who were killed in the collision were involved in an argument at a nearby apartment complex before they tried to cross the interstate, troopers said.
