An 80-year-old man and a 73-year-old woman from Osage County were killed in a car accident after their Dodge pickup was struck by a dump truck. According to a KJRH news report, the fatal Oklahoma truck accident occurred near the Lowe’s on Adams Boulevard in Bartlesville. Officials say the 80-year-old man was making a U-turn when a dump truck struck his pickup. The female passenger died at the scene of the crash and the male driver passed away that night. The driver of the dump truck was not injured and was not cited for the crash.

By Car Accident Help on November 5, 2010

Two Oklahoma high school students were killed in a fatal car crash on Sunday, October 24 according to The Sand Springs Leader. The 16-year-old driver of a 2001 Mercury Cougar was heading east on 61st Street South when, for an unknown reason, the vehicle didn’t stop at a stop sign.
