Four people are dead after crashes on state roads.
A woman, whose name had not been released Thursday evening, died after she drove the wrong way in the westbound lanes of Interstate 40 near Morgan Road about 2 a.m. Thursday, Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers said.
Her car hit a tractor-trailer head-on and caught fire. It took emergency crews more than six hours to remove the wreckage from the road and reopen all lanes of I-40.
Charlie Bird, 67, of Claremore
Bird died after a wreck about 8:20 p.m. Wednesday in Rogers County, troopers said.
Bird was southbound on county road North/South 420 when he tried to turn east on State Highway 20 and drove into the path of a pickup driven by Misty Kay Edwards-Matheso, 40, of Claremore.
Bird was taken to a Claremore hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Edwards-Matheso and her passenger, Beverlee Caraway, 12, of Claremore, both were treated for minor injuries and released. Everyone involved in the crash was wearing seat belts, troopers said.

Wolf died in a wreck on U.S. 69 about half a mile south of Wagoner.
Troopers said Wolf was driving south about 7:40 p.m. Wednesday when she went left of center and drove underneath a tractor-trailer driven by Peter S. Watts, 67, of Forestdale, Md.
Wolf was pronounced dead at the scene. Watts and a passenger in his tractor-trailer were not injured. Everyone was wearing a seat belt, troopers said.
Fay Baker, 90, of Crawford, Ark.
Baker died Wednesday from injuries she suffered in a wreck Sunday on I-40 in Caddo County.
She was a passenger in a pickup driven by Nancy Baker, 73, of Crawford, Ark. About 2:50 p.m., their pickup and a second one driven by Ronald Squires, 41, of Weatherford, were both heading west on I-40 when Squires' pickup hit Bakers' pickup from behind, troopers said.
Bakers' pickup hit an exit sign, then ran through a fence, coming to rest in a wheat field. Squires told troopers he fell asleep at the wheel.
Fay Baker was taken to OU Medical Center, where she died Wednesday. All involved were wearing seat belts.
