OHP investigates deadly crash in Cherokee County
CHEROKEE COUNTY, Okla. (KTUL) —
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded to an accident on Highway 62 Thursday afternoon.
Troopers say 49-year-old Stacey Swanson was driving a 1999 Toyota eastbound on the highway, when she drifted to the right side of the road for some reason. Swanson overcorrected to the left and was hit by Jake Green, 45, driving his Chevrolet PK westbound.
Swanson was pinned for a little bit before OHP and Tahlequah Fire Rescue freed her. She was taken to Northeastern Health Systems Hospital where she later died from her injuries.
OHP said both drivers were wearing their seatbelts.
