A Checotah woman died in a crash on U.S. 64 after a 19-year-old driver reportedly rolled through a stop sign early Friday in Muskogee County.
About 6 a.m. Friday a late-model sedan was attempting to cross U.S. 64 near Haskell on Old Taft Road when the driver reportedly failed to yield at a stop sign.
The driver, a 19-year-old from Fort Gibson, collided with a northbound 2013 Chevrolet Sonic. Troopers said the driver, a Coweta man, 29, was not injured. His passenger, Shelby R. Deluce, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers stated Deluce’s unborn child did not survive.
The other driver, identified in an Oklahoma Highway Patrol report but who has not been charged in connection to the crash, was treated and released at a local hospital.
Airbags deployed in both vehicles, but the report states the cause of the investigation and condition of the drivers remain under investigation. It’s unclear whether seat belts were equipped or in use.
