Victims identified in fatal Turner Turnpike traffic accident

A Claremore woman says one person found dead in the wreckage of a pickup truck near Sapulpa is her sister.

Authorities have been trying to identify the bodies of a man and woman since the wreckage was found Friday by a highway maintenance crew. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says it appears the truck ran off the road and flipped down an embankment before coming to rest in the creek.

Wendy Pierce of Claremore says the dead woman is her sister, Julie Shay of Bryan County. Pierce says Shay and Thomas Ralph Eagle left Bryan County on June 26th, heading to Pierce's home for a birthday party for Shay and Pierce's mother.
