NOBLE COUNTY, OK – A driver died and their passenger was critically injured in a single-car wreck on I-35 Thursday, KFOR reports.

Arnold’s passenger, Mei Wu Arnold, 62, was trapped underneath the vehicle until emergency crews arrived and used the Jaws of Life to extricate her around 7:15 a.m.

Mei Wu Arnold was then flown to a nearby hospital in critical condition with injuries to her head, torso, and legs.

Gregory was pronounced dead at the scene of the wreck.

Authorities are investigating the cause of the incident.

It is unclear exactly where on I-35 the traffic accident happened.
