Two people, including a Broken Arrow 19-year-old, were killed Monday in a head-on collision outside Tahlequah, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.

Sharon Scraper, 53, of Tahlequah was driving east on Oklahoma 51 about 5:20 p.m. when her 2019 Ford Ecosport crossed left of center, striking a 2007 Pontiac Torrent head-on. Scraper died at the scene.

A passenger in the Pontiac Torrent, Kaitlyn Owens, 19, of Broken Arrow, also died. The driver of the Torrent, a 37-year-old Broken Arrow woman, was flown to a Tulsa hospital.

Scraper and Owens were wearing their seatbelts; the injured driver was not, according to the report.

Troopers are investigating what caused Scraper to cross the center line.
