SAPULPA, Okla. - The Tulsa metro area marked its third deadly wrecked in less than 24 hours Thursday.
Sapulpa police are still investigating the cause of a crash that killed 27-year-old Johanna Snowman late Thursday night near 81st and New Sapulpa Road.
Police say a driver ran a red light and T-boned Snowman's vehicle. Her Corolla was hit with such an impact that the car was pushed into a ditch, killing the driver, who was in her late 20s, police say.
The driver of the other car, a Honda, was hospitalized with internal injuries.
Snowman, who worked at Tulsa's Doubleshot Coffee, was called "the glue" and "the mother" of the shop by one of her co-workers.
"I'll miss the talks we used to have about everything," said Connor Voight. "About religion, politics, coffee. All the things that normal 20-something-year-old people talk about."
The speed limit in the area Snowman was killed is 60 mph and police say they've tried to curb the number of wrecks along the intersection, putting in a stop light at the intersection due to the high number of accidents.
"We've had our share of crashes and fatalities on this road," said Sgt. Troy Foreman with the SPD.
The Honda driver underwent surgery following the crash. A toxicology report is pending.
