OKLAHOMA CITY -

One person is dead after a head-on collision on I-240 westbound Friday morning.

The incident started after police were called about an armed robbery just before 4 a.m. in the 1500 block of SW 59th Street.

Two men fled that scene in a red Saturn car. The car was spotted entering the westbound lanes of the interstate by a police officer. The car was traveling eastbound.

The red car then hit another vehicle head on near Santa Fe.

The driver of the red Saturn has been pronounced dead. The passenger in the suspect's car, identified as 51-year-old Michael J. Milton, was transported, treated and released from OU Medical Center into police custody.

The driver of the other car was also treated for minor injuries.

I-240 westbound is now reopened.

This is a developing story.
