1 dead, several injured in weekend wreck
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Barbara Montgomery, 43, of Red Oak was killed Friday night in a four-car accident east of Fanshawe. The accident report shows a 2012 Nissan driven by a Poteau woman east on U.S. Highway 270 failed to see another car stopped to make a left hand turn. When the driver of the Nissan took evasive action by entering the westbound lane she struck head on a 2005 Dodge that Montgomery was a passenger in, according to the accident report. The Nissan then reportedly struck the stopped vehicle that was waiting to turn left and a fourth vehicle struck the Nissan from behind. Two other people were injured in the accident.
