Drivers of car, semi-truck identified in deadly crash near Lake Texoma
MARSHALL COUNTY, Okla. – Authorities have identified a semi-truck driver who was killed in a crash near Lake Texoma last month.
Just before 2 p.m. on June 21, Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers learned that a vehicle on the bridge over Lake Texoma collided with a semi-truck, sending the tractor-trailer into the lake.
“And I saw the car on fire, and the semi-truck was fully submerged. So I saw air bubbles and stuff,” Tyler Rowland, who was swimming in Catfish Bay, told KXII.
Officials say the driver of the vehicle and the driver of the semi-truck were both killed in the crash.
For several days, crews worked to recover the semi-truck driver’s body and the truck from the bottom of the lake.
On Friday, officials with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol identified the drivers killed in the wreck.
Authorities say 59-year-old Adrianne Pinchney was the driver of the vehicle, and 54-year-old John Bosh was the driver of the semi-truck. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
