A Citrus County man and two others were killed Tuesday afternoon when a pair of vehicles collided in central Oklahoma.

Responders pronounced 67-year-old Larry G. Fitzgerald, of Lecanto, dead at the scene of the 2:25 p.m. crash on U.S. 281, about a mile and 1/2 north of Anadarko in Caddo County, according to a Oklahoma Highway Patrol report provided by Oklahoma’s News 4 on Thursday.

Amanda L. Satoe, 39, of Anadarko, and 32-year-old Joshua A. Westerman, of Marshall, Texas, were also pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

According to the report, Satoe and her passenger, Westerman, were traveling southbound on U.S. 281 in a 2002 Dodge Durango. At the same time, Fitzgerald was driving north on U.S. 281 in a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado towing a 24-foot camper trailer.

Satoe and Westerman had recently been involved in a domestic dispute, and were reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed.

The Durango reportedly left the roadway to the right, causing Satoe to overcorrect and cross into the opposite lanes of U.S. 281 before striking Fitzgerald's vehicle head on, the report states.

According to the report, the impact ejected Satoe, who wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. It also forced the Silverado off of the road and onto its passenger side, pinning Fitzgerald, who was freed about three hours later by the Anadarko Fire Department.

Westerman's body was also reportedly trapped inside the Durango.
