ELMWOOD, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has identified

victims of a head-on crash in state’s Panhandle that killed both

drivers and five passengers.

Police say a 2003 Ford van with five passengers was being driven

Wednesday by Alejandro Mejia Lopez on U.S. 412 when a 2012 Chevy

Suburban driven by Bobby Carroll Matthews crossed the center line

and hit the van head-on.

All the men in the van were from Liberal, Kan. Killed along with

the 28-year-old Lopez were Julio Ramos Perez, 25; Rigoberto Toj

Garcia, 24; Julio Cesar Don Juan Morino, 27; Sebastian Sucuquai

Saquic, 21; and Juan Lorenzo, 56. Francisco Diaz, 33, was in

critical condition Wednesday in an Amarillo, Texas, hospital.

Police did not know what caused the 55-year-old Matthews, of

Woodward, Okla., to lose control of his vehicle.
