CHEYENNE, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says an Elk City woman was killed and three other people injured in a head-on collision on U.S. 283 in Roger Mills County in far western Oklahoma.
An OHP report says 49-year-old Elva Garcia died in the crash about five miles south of Cheyenne on Thursday.
Troopers say Garcia was driving a car that crossed the center line of the highway as she crested a hill and collided with an oncoming pickup truck. The driver of the pickup and her 12- and 7-year-old sons were hospitalized in Oklahoma City in stable condition.
The roadway was closed for nearly two-and-a-half hours following the collision.
