CLAREMORE, Okla. - A Claremore woman was killed after a head-on collision in Rogers County Thursday.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials say 76-year-old Doris Starr died at the hospital after her car was struck head-on on Highway 88 north of Claremore around 4 p.m. Thursday.
Troopers say the 17-year-old driver of an SUV was northbound on the highway when she did not see a car waiting to make a left-hand turn into a private drive.
Investigators say the SUV hit the car from behind and pushed it across the center line and into oncoming traffic. The car hit Starr's vehicle head on.
Starr was pinned in the crash around 20 minutes, troopers say.
The driver of the SUV and a 17-year-old passenger both refused treatment for minor injuries at the scene, troopers say.
The 17-year-old driver of the car was transported to the hospital in stable condition.
