Michael Mahan and police Investigator Mark Ridley take measurements where a fatal car crash occurred July 16. Crystal Renee King Franklin, 28, was driving west on Shawnee and died after a pickup going east driven by Carl Jordan, 70, of Muskogee crossed the median and collided head-on with Franklin's vehicle. She was seven months pregnant. Her unborn child also died. Her sons, Cash, 18 months, and Drake, 5, were injured in the wreck, said Franklin's sister last week. Jordan is believed to have had a medical event prior to the wreck, investigators said last week. Mahan said the information gathered from the crash will be reported to the Muskogee County District Attorney's office for further review.
