A Ponca City woman died Thursday afternoon in an accident east of Perry in Noble County, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports.

Connie Schones, 63, of Ponca City, was pronounced dead at the scene from head, trunk, leg and arm injuries by Medical Examiner Investigator Greg Turner.

Schones was driving a 2008 Chevrolet Impala eastbound near U.S. Highway 64, a half-mile east of County Road 170, when the accident occurred about 4:15 p.m. Thursday, the Highway Patrol reported.

The patrol reported that Schones’ vehicle went left of center and struck the rear axle of a westbound 2014 Kenworth truck. The truck was driven by Bryan Standifer, 30, of Oklahoma City. He was not injured.

Schones was pinned in her vehicle about 2 hours and 45 minutes before being freed by the Perry Fire Department, the Highway Patrol reported.
