PAULS VALLEY, Okla. - A single mother of three was killed Wednesday night on what Pauls Valley police call a dangerous road.
Officers said they work four to five accidents every year on the same stretch of Royal Oaks Rd.
The latest crash claimed the life of Rebecca Lockhart.
Two teens in the other vehicle involved are expected to be okay.
A cross now sits off the road in remembrance of the 34-year-old.
“Hi, baby. I love you. I miss you so much,” John Cormier said as he knelt down by the cross.
Cormier, Lockhart’s fiancé, is now trying to cope with the loss.
“She was the love of my life, everything I ever wanted. She was great. Good mother. Wonderful person,” Cormier said.
Police said Lockhart was driving eastbound when her suburban collided with a pickup over the break of a hill.
The road is divided by Garvin County and Pauls Valley.
It has no center line and no shoulders.
“Normally, the problem we see is speed and inattention. If someone's cruising through here at a high rate of speed, you don't have time to correct when you come over the hill and meet someone," said Derrick Jolley, Pauls Valley’s Assistant Chief.
The speed limit is 45 miles per hour.
NewsChannel 4 clocked drivers going much faster than that.
One car was driving over 50 miles an hour.
“I just hope they do something with this road,” Cormier said.
Police are still investigating the cause of the crash that killed Lockhart.
Her loved ones are now holding on tight to reminders of her.
“I wish you were here right now. God, I miss you,” Cormier cried.
Lockhart leaves behind 10- and 11-year-old girls and a 3-year-old boy.
The Pauls Valley City Manager said they have not talked about making changes to the roadway, but they may in the future.
NewsChannel 4 has not heard back from the county yet.
A GoFundMe account has been set up to help Lockhart’s family.
