1 Killed, 5 Hurt in Crash on Muskogee Turnpike
BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a crash on the Muskogee Turnpike left one woman dead and five people injured, including three children who are in critical condition.
Authorities say the crash happened Wednesday afternoon when 30-year-old Tiffany Borovetz lost control of her vehicle. A preliminary report says Borovetz' vehicle flipped six times before coming to a rest.
The highway patrol says Borovetz was killed and her five passengers were injured. Four of the passengers — including a 7-year-old, a 9-year-old, a 13-year-old and a 23-year-old — are in critical condition at a Tulsa hospital. The fifth passenger, a 42-year-old woman, is in stable condition.
Authorities say several of the passengers were ejected from the vehicle and others were pinned in the wreckage until responders from Broken Arrow and Coweta arrived.
