Crash near Okay kills one

Two-car wreck leaves female dead, sends man to hospital

OKAY — A two-car wreck north of Okay killed one person and sent another to the hospital, said Oklahoma Highway Patrol Lt. Gary Isbell.

OHP responded to the wreck just after 4 p.m. Tuesday north of 88th Street in Wagoner County. Isbell said a female who “appeared to be an older teenager,” was killed in the wreck. The male passenger of a red Ford F-150 pickup was taken to Wagoner Community Hospital for observation, though Isbell said he was told the man had no visible injuries.

No identification information was available on the victims Tuesday evening as OHP officers continued their investigation.

Isbell said the female who was driving a black Cougar was northbound on Oklahoma 16 when the car went off the road to the right, the driver lost control and entered the southbound lane. It was then struck on the passenger side by the pickup.

Isbell said the female was not wearing a seat belt.

The two vehicles twisted together and came to rest in a ditch next to the southbound lane. The back windshield of the Cougar was shattered and lay in the road next to the pickup.

Two tow trucks were called to the scene to pull the vehicles apart. Once disengaged, the Cougar left scattered debris in the ditch.
