Broomfield, 57, of Cleo Springs.

Bloom field and a passenger Timothy J. Burns, 66, of Cleo Springs, were taken by private vehicle to St. Mary’s Hospital in Enid where they were treated and released. Best was not injured.

The cause of the collision is still under investigation.

Trooper Randy McCullough investigated assisted by Troopers Charity Robertson, Gene Goodson and Tanner Beckner.
