Nair, Short, and Brooks were traveling southbound on a wet roadway when their SUV hydroplaned, veered to the right, and came to a stop. A semi traveling in the same direction collided with the 2017 Volkswagen Tiguan, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

At the scene, the three were pronounced dead. Tonkawa Fire Department officials and paramedics labored for over five hours to extricate them from the wreckage. The semi-truck driver was brought to a hospital in Blackwell but later released.
