Betty Wells, 78, of Gore was killed in a single-vehicle wreck this weekend, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Wells was driving her 2006 Ford Focus southbound on Country Road Indian Road “at a high rate of speed,” the patrol reported, when she failed to negotiate a left curve and departed the roadway to the right, overturning at least once.

She was transported by Cherokee Nation EMS to WW Hastings hospital in Tahlequah, where she was pronounced dead.

The cause of the wreck is cited as unsafe speed on a curve.
