NEWCASTLE, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says two people were killed in a two-vehicle collision on the H.E. Bailey Turnpike in Newcastle.
An OHP report says 39-year-old Kenda Dixon of Cache and 21-year-old Justin Lynn Duncan of Cache died as a result of injuries suffered in the crash Sunday.
The report says Dixon and Duncan were in a westbound vehicle being driven by Dixon when she stopped to make a U-turn and was struck by a westbound pickup truck. Dixon was pronounced dead at the scene and Duncan died while being taken to a hospital.
The driver of the pickup was not injured.
