Head-on collision killed two Guthrie teachers

Two teachers from a public school in Guthrie, Oklahoma were killed in a wrong-way accident in Payne County, KOCO reported on October 27.

The fatalities were identified as Heather Wilson, 27, and Jennifer Briggs, 24, both residents of Stillwater who carpooled to work together every morning. The accident allegedly occurred when Rocky Baca, 37, drove his van the wrong way down State Highway 33. The women attempted to avoid the collision but were hit head-on. Baca remains in the hospital for injuries, although details were not released. Authorities are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash.

The Guthrie Public Schools superintendent Mike Simpson expressed the grief that the community is experiencing, especially the staff and students at Guthrie Junior High School, where both teachers taught. School counselors remain at hand.

Walmart trucker was speeding in Tracy Morgan crash

The Walmart semi-truck driver who was involved in the recent fatal crash that injured comedian Tracy Morgan and killed comedian James McNair was discovered to be driving well above the speed limit, NBC News stated on June 19.

Reports said trailer truck operator Kevin Roper was driving with a speed of 65 mph on a road with a 45 mph limit when he rear-ended the limousine bus occupied by Morgan and his friends. The New Jersey Turnpike had a reduced speed because of ongoing construction work. The National Transportation Safety Board is still investigating how much sleep Roper was driving on, but it does not appear that he violated the hours of service regulations. Roper, who was charged with injury and homicide by a vehicle, reportedly pleaded not guilty.
