Tulsa Police: Woman Dead, Teen Critical After Car Broadsides Their Minivan

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

A woman is dead and a teenager is in critical condition after the van they were riding in was nearly split in two by a car that ran a stop sign early Tuesday evening, police said.

The two, who police said are sisters, stopped at a four-way stop at 21st Street and South Lynn Lane in East Tulsa. When they started to drive across the intersection, a car ran the stop sign and T-boned the minivan, according to police.

Both the driver of the minivan, 27, and her 17-year-old passenger were flown by medical helicopter to a Tulsa hospital, where the driver was pronounced dead.

Police initially believed the driver of the minivan was also a teenager, but later learned she was older.  

The driver of the car was transported by EMSA to a hospital.  She'll be tested for alcohol and drugs, police on the scene said.

Crash investigators estimated the car was traveling between 55-65 mph at the time of the crash.

Identification of those involved is pending while authorities notify family members.
