12-Year-Old Dies in Triple Fatal Carter County Crash



    Two women were instantly killed in violent car wreck Monday morning in Graham, Oklahoma and a 12-year-old girl later died from her injuries.

    It happened around 7:30 a.m. on State Highway 53 in Carter County.

    Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers say a Nissan Pathfinder, driven by 30-year-old Lacey Bivens, was heading westbound when it crossed the center lane and hit a car head on.

    72-year-old Beverly Roper, 51-year-old Rhonda Russell and a 12-year-old girl were inside that car heading east, all three from Graham.

    Russell and Roper were pronounced dead at the scene.

    The child was taken by helicopter to an Ardmore hospital, then transferred to the OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. OHP troopers said Wednesday morning that she died from her injuries there.

    Bivens was pinned in her car for about 20 minutes before being cut out, according to OHP. She was also taken to Mercy Memorial Hospital in Ardmore before being transferred to the OU Medical Center. She is also in critical condition.

    Troopers say everyone was wearing their seatbelts.

    Several law enforcement agencies are investigating what caused Bivens to go left of the center line.
