The driver of a 1999 Ford Explorer traveling west in the eastbound lane was killed when the vehicle struck an eastbound Subaru head-on yesterday just before noon on the Muskogee Turnpike, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

The driver of the Subaru was trapped in a flaming vehicle for 21 minutes, but sustained only minor injuries, the patrol reported. It was struck from behind by a 2018 Ram pickup and a Volvo semi, the patrol stated. Neither of those drivers nor a juvenile passenger in the pickup were hurt.

All of the eastbound vehicle occupants were wearing seatbelts. It is unknown if the Explorer driver was.
