Three men are dead after a head-on collision south of Asher early Saturday morning.

According to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol report, Richard L. Campbell, 53, of Midwest City, Timothy Campbell, 51 of Newalla, and Dathan Lane, 56, of Asher were all killed when two pickups collided on SH3W just north of County Road 1430 in Pontotoc County.

For an undetermined reason, Richard Campbell’s 2004 Dodge Ram pickup crossed the centerline and struck the 1997 GMC pickup driven by Lane head-on.

The crash sent Lane’s pickup off the road to the left. Campbell’s pickup rolled an unknown number of times and struck a 2013 Ford F150 driven by 48-year old Michael Goltz of Oklahoma City.

Campbell and his passenger, Timothy Campbell, a 51-year old man from Newalla were both pinned in the wreckage for almost three hours. A 16-year old juvenile male from Midwest City was ejected from the Campbell vehicle as it rolled, but he was treated and released from Integris Baptist Hospital after being transported by Airevac with a leg injury.

Lane was also pinned in his vehicle for three hours before being pronounced dead at the scene.

Goltz, 48 of Oklahoma City was taken by Pontotoc County EMS to Mercy Hospital in Ada where he was treated and released with leg and arm injuries.

Oil Center and Ada Fire Departments using the Hurst Tool freed the drivers and passengers who were pinned in the wreckage. Airbags were installed and deployed in all three vehicles. All drivers and passengers except for the 16-year old juvenile were using seatbelts at the time of the crash.
