PAWNEE COUNTY, Okla. — A 4-year-old boy died in a one-vehicle crash on State Highway 18 early Wednesday morning, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol says.

OHP says Kendra Leann Womack, 30, of Oilton, was 9 miles south of Pawnee when she departed the roadway to the left and hit a tree a little before 1 a.m.

She was transported to Tulsa by a medical helicopter and was in critical condition, the collision report says.

The passenger, a 4-year-old boy, died at the scene.

Womack’s condition at the time of the crash and the cause of the collision still are under investigation, according to troopers.


In a separate crash on Highway 18, two Tulsa women were killed on Wednesday at 10:40 a.m.

Troopers say Tammy Liggins, 50, and Agnes Madden, 78, were passengers in a car that ran a stop sign at the U.S. Highway 64 junction with Highway 18.

The car struck an 82-year-old pickup driver from Hallett, who was not injured.

According to the collision report, Rubin Dewayne Richardson, 58, of Tulsa, was driving the car with three passengers. Liggins was flown to a Tulsa hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Madden was transported by ambulance to the Cleveland Area Hospital and pronounced dead.

A third passenger, Louella Madden, 57, of Tulsa, was flown to a Tulsa hospital with unknown injuries, the report says.
