TULSA, Oklahoma -- An airman whose wife and daughter died in Friday's head-on crash north of Talala returned to Tulsa from Iraq Monday.

The service member was deployed in the Middle East country when he learned about the accident.

Troopers say Christina Ramsey veered into oncoming traffic and hit two cars on Highway 169. She and her 8-year-old daughter Josie died at the scene.
