PRAGUE, OK (LINCOLN COUNTY) – An elderly woman was killed and another two people were injured in a collision on Highway 62 in Lincoln County on Friday, according to information from KFOR News.

The crash happened near Prague and South 3560 Road on Hwy 62 at about 1:47 p.m., after the driver of a 2002 GMC Envoy SUV, 79-year-old Prague resident Joan H. Marlowe, went off the left side of the westbound highway.

Marlowe went into the eastbound lanes of traffic, where she collided head-on with a 2018 Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck being driven by an 85-year-old man from Paden.

The impact caused the pickup truck to overturn multiple times and sent it 30 feet from the side of the roadway.

Marlowe was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the Colorado was airlifted to the hospital in Tulsa to receive treatment for critical injuries, including those to the head, arm, leg, and torso.

A passenger in the Colorado, a 90-year-old woman from Paden, was taken to the hospital in Oklahoma City, also with multiple critical injuries.

Authorities continue to investigate the crash at this time.
