CANADIAN COUNTY, OK — A woman died Friday morning after a two-vehicle collision that injured her 10-year-old daughter near northwest Yukon, according to OKCFOX.

The fatal wreck occurred on Northwest Expressway at Cimarron Road Northwest.

According to police, a car was heading eastbound on the expressway. At one point, a truck heading southbound on Cimarron Road veered past the centerline and struck the car.

Officials confirmed an adult female occupant in the car died from her injuries at the scene.

Her daughter, who was also a passenger in the car, was transported to a local hospital. She is expected to recover from her injuries.

Following the first crash, another vehicle hit the back of a parked sedan along the side of the road. Two patients from that collision suffered undisclosed injuries and were taken to a nearby hospital.

A section of the NW Expressway was closed for hours during the emergency response.

No pending charges or citations have been reported at this time.
