Two people were killed August 26 when their car crossed a center line and collided with another vehicle.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Chasen Bennett identified the pair as Junetta A. Rolen, 43, of Maysville, and Bradley D. Frazier, 45, of Wayne.
The deadly wreck occurred at 8:29 a.m. on State Highway 3 West, approximately six miles west of Ada.
Bennett reported Rolen was driving a 2015 Kia Optima westbound on the highway when the vehicle left the road to the right.
Rolen over corrected to the left, causing the car to cross the center line and collide with an eastbound 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 pickup driven by Kathy L. Babb, 63, of Ada.
Frazier was a passenger in Rolen’s vehicle.
Both were pronounced dead at the scene by Mercy EMS personnel. The bodies were taken to an Ada funeral home.
Babb sustained an arm injury and was taken by Mercy EMS to Mercy Hospital in Ada where she was treated and released.
All three were wearing seatbelts. Airbags deployed in the pickup and the passenger side of the Kia.
According to Bennett, the cause of the crash is under investigation, as is Rolen’s condition.
Assisting Bennett at the scene were Troopers Tyler Jack and Ken Duncan, State Medical Examiner investigator Rock Smith, Pontotoc County Sheriff’s Department, Ada and Oil Center fire departments and Mercy EMS.
