OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is investigating a pair of separate crashes that left two people dead.
The patrol says in a preliminary report that 48-year-old Mannford resident Robyin R. Anderson was killed late Friday in a Creek County crash. Earlier Friday afternoon, 43-year-old Broken Arrow resident Jonathan B. Taylor died in a crash in Rogers County.
Troopers say Anderson ran a stop sign, sending her car airborne. The vehicle hit a tree while in the air. Anderson was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene.
Earlier Friday, Taylor was killed on the Will Rogers Turnpike. He was operating a wrecker and attempting to tow a truck. Taylor was standing on the shoulder of the road when another truck traveling westbound in the outside lane left the roadway and struck him.
