Two people died Thursday after separate vehicle crashes on Oklahoma roads, and a woman died Thursday after suffering injuries in Monday accident, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.
Siarhei Kisliuk, 42, Tonawanda, N.Y.
Shortly after 7:45 a.m., Kisliuk was driving westbound on the Will Rogers Turnpike at mile marker 300, two miles west of Afton in Ottawa County, when his car crashed into the back of a tractor-trailer rig traveling in front of him, troopers said.
Kisliuk was pinned in his vehicle for more than an hour and died at the scene. The driver of the tractor-trailer rig was not injured, troopers said.
Ryan Miller, 20, Caddo
About 12:30 p.m., Miller was driving a pickup southbound on Caddo Highway two miles east of Durant in Bryan County when he ran off the road to the left, struck a utility pole and rolled twice, troopers said.
Miller was ejected more than 50 feet from the vehicle and was taken to the Medical Center of Southeastern Oklahoma in Durant, where he died, troopers said.
Miller was not wearing a seat belt, and high driving speed factored into the crash, troopers said.
Ericka Lea Cook, 22, of Covington
About 11:55 p.m. Monday, Cook was riding in a pickup southbound on State Highway 74. Cook was arguing with the driver when the driver abruptly turned onto Longhorn Trail Road and Cook fell out of the pickup, troopers said.
Cook was taken by medical helicopter to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. She died about 12:05 p.m. Thursday, troopers said.
Cook and the driver were not wearing seat belts. The driver was not injured in the accident, troopers said.
