LOGAN COUNTY, OK – A woman fatally collided with a car after running a stop sign near Edmond at S Sooner Rd and E Simmons Rd  Friday, according to KFOR.

The impact from the crash sent the pathfinder into the northbound lanes of Sooner Rd, where it then struck a Dodge Caravan and a GMC Yukon.

The drivers of both the Yukon and Pathfinder refused treatment. The driver of the Yukon did not suffer any injuries.
