PUSHMATAHA COUNTY, Okla. - A Towson woman is dead after she was struck by a vehicle Monday as she tried to clear a dead animal from a highway.
70-year-old Beulah S. O'neal died at Pushmataha County Memorial Hospital from neck and extensive internal injuries, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
The accident occurred at around 7:50 p.m. on State Highway 3 in Rattan when Spencerville resident Dorothy Hilburn, 39, stopped her eastbound 2005 pick-up in the road and she and O'neal, her passenger, stepped out of the vehicle to pick up a deer killed in an earlier accident.
It was then when an eastbound 2005 Mazda driven by 60-year-old Janice Headrick of McAlester struck the stopped pick-up truck in the rear. Hedrick was transported to the hospital where she was treated for arm and internal injuries and released.
As Hilburn was not in the vehicle at the time of the accident, she was not injured.
