STRATFORD, Okla. – Authorities say two people are dead after a simple mistake caused four cars to crash along a highway in Garvin County.
On Aug. 13, officers were called to Hw 177 near Stratford after a 2001 Chevy pickup truck caused a chain reaction crash.
Officials with the Department of Public Safety say 19-year-old Jodi Hawkins was driving a pickup truck when she crossed the center line and hit a trailer being pulled by another truck.
Hawkins’ truck then hit a 2010 Ford pickup head on, sending that truck and its driver, 56-year-old Roseanna Owens, off the roadway.
Owens’ vehicle flipped and came to rest on its top.
At that point, another vehicle hit Hawkins’ truck.
Hawkins was pronounced dead at the scene after she was ejected from the truck.
Owens was pinned for an unknown amount of time before she was freed. Tragically, she died at a hospital from her injuries.
Three people in another vehicle, including two young children, were taken to a hospital for injuries.
