Burger was driving about 8:20 p.m. Monday on Coltrane Road just south of 15th Street when his vehicle left the road, struck some trees and rolled into a ditch, Edmond police spokeswoman Jennifer Monroe said. The cause of the wreck was under investigation Tuesday.

Kathern M. Unwin, 73, Chester

Unwin was dead at the scene of a 7:30 p.m. Monday crash in Major County, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.
