Shelby R. Deluce, 29, of Checotah was killed in a two-car crash around 6 this morning on US 64 just east of Haskell, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. Her unborn fetus was also killed.

Deluce was a passenger in a 2013 Chevrolet Sonic driven By Corey Murphy, 29, of Coweta. Murphy was not injured. Murphy’s car was traveling northbound on the highway, when a 2020 Kia Rio driven By Curtisiana Brown, 19, of Fort Gibson did not stop at a stop sign from Old Taft Road, the patrol alleged. Brown’s car collided with Murphy’s car.

The cause of the collision is under investigation, as well as the condition of Brown at the time. Airbags deployed in both vehicles, but the patrol is uncertain at this time whether seat belts were in use.
