Two women and two children died in a vehicle collision on Friday, April 23rd. The fatal crash occurred on U.S. 69 near North-South 630 Road, approximately 3 ½ miles north of Quapaw.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, 30-year-old Charlsee Eberly, of Miami, was driving a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix and 28-year-old Kaitlyn Kibel, of Quapaw, was driving a 2016 Nissan Rogue when the collision occurred. There were no passengers in Eberly’s vehicle, while Kibel had five passengers, all children.
Tragically, Eberly, Kibel, a seven-year-old girl from Miami, and a 10-year-old boy from Quapaw, all died as a result of their injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victims.
Three other children, including a three-year-old boy from Miami, a seven-year-old boy from Quapaw, and an eight-year-old boy from Miami, all suffered injuries in the crash. They were transported to Freeman Memorial Hospital in Joplin, Missouri, to be treated for head, arm, leg, and internal and external trunk injuries.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
