The Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded to a three-car accident on Saturday, February 27th, around 8 a.m. According to News 9, the crash happened near U.S. Route 169 and State Highway 10 in Nowata County.
The OHP reported a vehicle was attempting to turn southbound on U.S. Route 169 from State Highway 10 when it pulled out in front of a southbound vehicle on U.S. Route 169. The first vehicle was hit by the second, causing it to veer into northbound traffic on U.S. Route 169.
A northbound third vehicle on U.S. Route 169 struck the first vehicle head-on, causing it to overturn. Sadly, the two people in the third vehicle died as a result of their injuries. 60-year-old Kimberly Schick of Oklahoma City was pronounced dead at the scene. 64-year-old Larry Schick was pulled from the wreckage and transported to a hospital in Coffeyville, Kansas, but he succumbed to his injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victims.
