Woman Killed in I-40 Crash Monday Night


A Florida woman was reported killed in a crash at 8:16 p.m. Monday on Interstate 40 about one mile west of Webbers Falls.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) reported Yvonne Joyner, 56, of Dover, Fla., was pronounced dead at the scene by Muskogee County EMS. She reportedly suffered head and internal and external injuries in a crash with a semi-truck.

The OHP reported Christopher Joyner, 37, of Dover, Fla., was driving a 2012 Chrysler 200 and was exiting the Muskogee Turnpike onto I-40 going east when he failed to negotiate the turn. He entered traffic too early and hit the side of 2016 Freightliner driven by Adrian Russell, 47, of Lake Havasu, Ariz. He was not injured. Joyner’s Chrysler then ran off the road to the right and rolled one a half times, coming to a stop on the driver’s side. Yvonne Joyner, a passenger in the Chrysler, was pinned for about 30 minutes before being freed by the Webbers Falls Fire Department with the Jaws of Life. 

Christopher Joyner was transported by Pafford EMS to St. Francis Hospital in Muskogee where he was treated and released.
