The Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded to two fatality collisions in northeastern Oklahoma on Wednesday evening.
Yvette Wolf, 32, of Wagoner and Charlie Bird, 67, of Claremore were killed in separate two-vehicle crashes.
Wolf was driving a 2002 Ford two-door car south on U.S. 69 in Wagoner County when, for an unknown reason, the car drove into oncoming traffic and under the trailer of a 2012 Kenworth tractor-trailer rig at 7:40 p.m., troopers said.
She was pronounced dead at the scene, which was a half-mile south of Wagoner near 275th Road.
The truck’s driver, Peter S. Watts of Forestdale, Md., and his passenger, Michael D. Wright of Las Vegas, were not injured, according to an accident report.
Bird was attempting to turn eastbound from Rogers County Road 420 onto Oklahoma 20 at 8:22 p.m. when his 2011 Chevrolet Malibu was struck by a westbound Dodge Durango, the OHP said.
Bird apparently failed to yield at a stop sign, according to the report, and died at the scene.
Misty Kay Edwards-Matheso, 40, and Beverlee Caraway, 12, both of Claremore – the Durango’s occupants – were treated and released from Claremore Regional Hospital, troopers said.
Everyone involved in both wrecks was wearing a seat belt.
