A Spiro woman was killed at about 3:23 p.m. Monday in a one-car crash on U.S. Highway 271, one mile west of State Highway 9A in LeFlore County. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported Willie Gray White, 52, of Spiro was driving a 2006 Cadillac east when, for an unknown reason, the car ran off the highway to the right, then rolled several times, and collided with a tree. The car came to a rest on its top. The passenger, Doris Perkins, 63, of Spiro was pinned for about 20 minutes before she was extricated by the Murray Spur Fire Department with the Hurst Rescue Tool. Perkins was transported by LeFlore County EMS to Mercy Hospital where she was pronounced dead about two hours after arrival. White was also transported to Mercy Hospital where he was treated for minor injuries and released. The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
