Victims identified in SUV vs. oil tanker crash in Cotton Co.

COTTON CO., OK – Troopers with the OHP have released the identities of the two individuals injured in a collision involving an oil tanker in Cotton County Wednesday morning.

According to KSWO, the accident took place shortly before noon near the intersection of 11th Street and Logue Chapel Road.

Responding officers say the driver of an SUV, Yolanda Powell, was traveling south on US-277 when her vehicle veered into the oncoming lane and collided head-on with the oil tanker.

Both vehicles careened off the roadway and caught fire in a nearby field.

Powell was trapped in her vehicle for about 20 minutes before fire crews were able to extricate her using the jaws of life. She was transported to OU Medical Center in critical condition.

The driver in the tanker, Bobby Starcher, was also hospitalized with serious, potentially life-threatening injuries.
