VERDIGRIS, Okla.—A multi-car pileup  on the Will Rogers Turnpike turns deadly in Rogers County.

Troopers with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol say a car hit the center barrier and came to a stop on the highway Friday night.

Six other vehicles and a semi-truck collided while trying to avoid the stopped car.

That crash tipped the semi over and forced other cars into a nearby ditch.

A woman from the car that was stopped on the highway got outside to check the vehicle.

That’s when a car careened into her, killing her on impact.

We’re told a 6-year-old boy was transported to the hospital in stable condition.
