The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has identified three people killed in wrecks on state roads since late Monday.
Marsha D. Haines, 33, Ada
Quentin D. Fields, 25, Roff
Haines and Fields were killed about 11:15 p.m. Monday in a collision on the Chickasaw Turnpike in Pontotoc County, the patrol reported.
Fields was not wearing a seatbelt. A passenger in his vehicle, Melissa F. Carpenter, was taken to OU Medical Center in serious condition.
Haines was westbound and Fields was eastbound. Both were in sedans. Investigators have yet to determine the cause of the wreck, the patrol reported.
The crash was a half mile north of the Dolberg Road overpass about a mile west of Roff. The northbound and southbound lanes of the turnpike were closed from about 11:20 p.m. until about 3:10 a.m., the patrol reported.
Ryan Peacock, 30, Pauls Valley
Peacock was dead at the scene of a crash about 6 a.m. Wednesday on State Highway 39, just east of Patterson Road, near Wanette.
Sean Wallace, director of the Oklahoma Corrections Professionals, said Peacock was a state corrections officer at the Lexington Assessment and Reception Center. Peacock was on his way to work at the time of the crash, Wallace said.
Peacock was driving west at an unsafe speed when he drove off the roadway and hit a tree, according to the report. He was wearing a seat belt.
