Barnsdall, OK – 4 killed in head-on crash in Osage County
BARNSDALL, Okla. (AP) Three Ohio women and one from Michigan have been killed in a head-on collision on State Highway 11 in northern Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol identifies the dead as 69-year-old Christine Fulghum, 85-year-old Martha Jacobs and Lavonne Gantt all of Toledo, Ohio, and 84-year-old Norma Otterstetter of Southgate, Mich.
Troopers say the four died just before 4:30 p.m. Sunday when the van they were in was hit head-on near Barnsdall by an oncoming pickup truck after the driver of the truck fell asleep at the wheel. The van was then hit from the rear by another pickup.
No other serious injuries were reported from the crash.
