A Shady Point couple was killed in a three-vehicle crash at 10 a.m. Monday in LeFlore County. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) reported the dead are Joe Waddle, 68, and Debra Waddle, 58. Both were pronounced dead at the scene, at the intersection of U.S. Highway 271 and Kerr Blvd. The OHP reported Andrea Callahan, 26, of Wister was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Impala west on U.S. Highway 271 when she struck from behind the 2008 Dodge pickup driven by Joe Waddle. Waddle, also driving west, was stopped waiting for oncoming traffic to pass to make a left turn. The impact sent the pickup truck across the center line and into the path of a collision with a 2014 Mack semi-truck, driven by Casey Vaughn, 33, of Heavener. The Waddles were pinned for about an hour before being extracted by the Poteau and Wister Fire Departments using the Hurst Tool. Callahan was transported by LeFlore County EMS to Sparks Regional Medical Center in Fort Smith where she was admitted and listed in stable condition with leg injuries. A four-month-old female in her car was treated at the scene and released to family members. Vaughn was treated and released at the scene.
