Three Garvin County families are dealing with the tragic deaths of four loved ones who died due to separate vehicle accidents over this past week.
The first accident occurred on Wednesday, July 17, on State Highway 19, 3.8 miles west of Maysville, at approximately 8:17 p.m.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Dustin Davis, 21, of Lindsay, was traveling westbound on SH 19 when he crossed the centerline and struck a 2018 Mazda M6 driven by Kylie Newey, 24, also of Lindsay.
Davis’ vehicle rolled one-quarter times, causing him to be ejected from his pickup.
Newey was pinned for approximately 2.5 hours and had to be extricated from her car by the Maysville Fire Department using the Hurst tool.
As of press time, the OHP did have a reason for Davis crossing the centerline. The accident is still under investigation.
Both Davis and Newey were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
On Saturday, July 20, another double fatality accident took the lives of two Wynnewood children, ages 9 and 13.
According to the OHP, the crash came at 11:37 Saturday morning at the intersection of County Road 1570 and County Road 3300 approximately 4.7 miles east of Pauls Valley.
The OHP is still investigating the accident.
What is known so far is that a 2019 Ford Edge driven by Edward K. Peters, 37, of Wynnewood collided with a 2013 Chevrolet 2500 pickup William A.D. Patchell , 22, of Pauls Valley.
Traveling with Peters was his wife, Fallon Peters, 35, and the two children, one male age 9 and a 13 year-old girl.
Both adults in the car were transported to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City and were admitted in fair condition.’
Patchell was transported by private vehicle to Purcell Municipal Hospital in Purcell, according to the OHP, where he was treated and released with head injury.
The 13 year-old girl in the Peters’ vehicle expired at the scene of the accident while the 9 year-old boy was first taken by the Mercy EMS to the Arbuckle Memorial Hospital in Sulphur where he was transported by Air Evac to OU Medical where he was pronounced expired by medical personnel at OU Medical Center.
The deaths of the two children have brought out an outpouring of support for the Peters family with over $30,000 raised on a Go Fund Me Page to help with their medical and funeral services.
“I know they are dancing with the angels,” said one friend of the family on a Facebook page dedicated to the memory of the two children.
A bake sale and hamburger dinner is also planned for this weekend from 11 am to 2 pm in Wynnewood to raise more money for the Peters family.
“Such beautiful smiles…both so talented in their own way,” said another friend on Facebook. “We are all heartbroken for you.”
