CREEK COUNTY, Okla. (KTUL) —
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is investigating a deadly crash in Creek County.
Troopers responded around 7:30 a.m. to the crash on Highway 66 near 337th West Avenue. Troopers say a pickup and a sedan crashed head-on, killing two people in the sedan and one person in the pickup.
The crash was so violent, people living nearby heard the impact.
“I heard a big crash. We’ve had more around here so I know what it is usually. I got up and looked out the door and saw a head-on right there on the road,” said David Green.
The victims have been identified as 90-year-old Donald Fisher and 78-year-old Mary Fisher of Broken Arrow and 29-year-old Brandi Shoemake of Stroud.
“The car was smoking real bad, but it never caught on fire. By the time I got around and got out there, people were busting windows to try and get in and check on the car first,” said Green.
It’s not clear what caused the crash.
“I don’t think that this is a problem area more than any other place. This is just one of those things that happen. Here it is Monday morning, it’s all quiet and then all of a sudden this happens,’ said Trooper Dwight Durant.
The hope now is to find some answers, to give the families of those involved some sense of closure.
