According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP), Jennifer Adams, 34, and Kimberly Tunnell, 25, were driving north on Oklahoma 99 in a 2007 Mazda on January 27, when, shortly before 10 a.m., they came upon a 1991 Ford F150 driven by 30-year-old Danny Ray Shroeder. Shroeder was attempting to make a left-hand turn into a private driveway as the Mazda approached the truck from behind, traveling at a high rate of speed. Troopers said that the Mazda attempted to pack the pickup truck and struck the vehicle on the driver’s side. Following the collision, Adams was transported to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa and was admitted in critical condition, while Tunnell was transported to St. John Medical Center, where she was admitted in stable condition. Emergency crews transported Shroeder to Drumright Hospital, where he too was admitted in stable condition, but with leg injuries.


According to authorities investigating the wreck, the roadway where the accident occurred was dry, and unsafe speed was a contributing factor in the collision.
