STROUD, Okla. (AP) — A man was killed and a state senator was injured after a two-car crash early Friday on the Turner Turnpike near Stroud, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.
The man was driving westbound on the turnpike when his vehicle hydroplaned and crashed into a ditch, said OHP spokeswoman Sarah Stewart. State Sen. Allison Ikley-Freeman, a Tulsa Democrat, then ran off the roadway in the same spot and crashed into the man's vehicle.
The man died at the scene, while Ikley-Freeman was trapped in the wreckage for 40 minutes before firefighters freed her, according to a patrol report. She was transported to the OU Medical Center, where she was treated and released.
