HEALDTON, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says two people were killed in separate automobile accidents on snowy roads in the state during the weekend.

The OHP says 61-year-old Vickie Blevins of Healdton died Saturday when the car she was driving on State Highway 76 about 6 miles north of Healdton went off the snowy, slushy roadway and overturned. The patrol says the cause of the crash is still under investigation.

The OHP says 67-year-old Jeanne Ellis of Chickasha also died Saturday when the vehicle she was riding in went off snow-packed State Highway 19 near Maysville and overturned. The OHP report says the vehicle was traveling too fast for the conditions at the time.
