A car crash west of Tahlequah on Monday left two Oklahoma women dead.

According to an accident report, the collision happened at 5:23 p.m. on State Highway 51 east of Baker Road, about 1.4 miles west of Tahlequah in Cherokee County.

The report shows that a Ford Ecosport driven by Sharon Scrapper, 53, of Tahlequah was traveling eastbound on Highway 51 when it crossed left of center, colliding head-on with a 2007 Pontiac Torrent being driven by Ora Owens, 37, of Broken Arrow. Both vehicles came to rest in the westbound lane.

Scrapper and Kaitlyn Owens, 19, of Broken Arrow, a passenger in Ora Owens’ vehicle, both died of internal trunk injuries. 

Ora Owens was flown by Med Evac to St. John Hospital in Tulsa.

Roads were clear and dry at the time of the crash, the report shows. Scrapper was wearing her seat belt when the wreck occurred, but Ora Owens was not. Kaitlyn Owens was wearing her seat belt, the report reveals.

The cause of the collision is still under investigation.
