A second person has died in one of two Oklahoma fatality crashes reported Tuesday by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Shelby Blessin, 25, of Ratliff City

Blessin and Bowen died in an accident about 12:10 a.m. Tuesday in Stephens County, the patrol reported.

They were passengers in a pickup driven by Jennifer Kimbro, 24, of Wynnewood.

Kimbro was driving west on State Highway 7 when the pickup left the roadway. She overcorrected, causing the pickup to go into a broad slide across both lanes and to roll. All three occupants were ejected, troopers said.

Blessin was pronounced dead at the scene. Bowen was taken to Comanche County Memorial Hospital where she died.

Kimbro was taken to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City in serious condition.

None of the occupants was wearing a seat belt. A trooper noted the odor of alcohol on the driver.

David Barrett, 62, of Roff

Barrett was killed in a collision about 6:55 a.m. Monday 4 miles south of Elmore City in Garvin County, the patrol reported.

He was driving south on State Highway 74 when his vehicle was struck head-on by a vehicle driven by Crystal Kennedy, 29, of Elmore City. Kennedy was northbound and crossed the centerline.

Barrett was dead at the scene. Kennedy was taken to OU Medical Center in serious condition with injuries.

Seat belts were in use in both vehicles.
