An accident has killed an Owasso resident and injured another. The accident happened around 11-thirty Tuesday night.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers say Celeste Gardner was driving a small convertible east on 96th Street North, ran a stop sign, and hit a truck headed south on Highway 75. Trooper Derek Eads, “The vehicle didn't even stop at the stop sight, it simply was, jetted out on the roadway. The southbound pick-up had very little time to react.”

The Gardner was killed. The pick-up driver was taken to a Tulsa hospital where he was treated and released.
