A 38-year-old Chouteau woman is dead after a two-vehicle Wagoner County crash, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol says.

According to a collision report, Jennifer F. Owens was pinned in her vehicle about 30 minutes and had to be extricated by firefighters before being pronounced dead.

The crash happened on Friday just after midnight about 2 miles south of Mazie.

OHP says Owens was westbound on 650 Road, crested a hill and swerved right to avoid a vehicle, which sent her into a fishtail. Owens hit an SUV head on when she overcorrected, according to the investigating trooper.

The report says Brenda Wilson, 50, was driving the SUV was transported by ambulance and admitted to a hospital in fair condition with arm, trunk internal and leg injuries. Calvin Wilson, 62, was treated and released from a hospital with trunk internal injuries; Julie Wilson, 17, was admitted in fair condition with trunk internal and arm injuries, the report says. The Wilsons are all of Chouteau, OHP says.

The trooper said both drivers at the time of the crash was apparently normal and the cause of the crash was Owens being left of center.

All involved in the crash were wearing seat belts, according to OHP.
