Authorities say a woman and a girl from Keyes
were killed in a collision in the Oklahoma Panhandle.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said 36-year-old Lourdes Martinez
and 11-year-old Analy Nevarez died in an accident about 6:25 a.m.
yesterday near the Kansas state line.
Troopers say Martinez was driving a minivan south on Oklahoma 95
when she ran a stop sign at a county road intersection. A westbound
box truck crashed into the minivan, killing Martinez and Analy.
The trucks driver, 51-year-old Ricky Dean McDowell of Amarillo,
Texas, was treated at a Kansas hospital and released.
The patrol says McDowell was wearing a seat belt, but Martinez
and Analy were not.
