A woman and an 8-year-old girl died Friday after a head-on collision on U.S. 169 in Rogers County, and a woman riding on the back of a motorcycle died in a LeFlore County wreck, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.

Christina Ramsey, 34, and Josie Ramsey, 8, of Chelsea, died of massive injuries at the scene of the wreck on U.S. 169 just north of County Road East/West 32. Troopers said the Ramseys were in a sport utility vehicle traveling north when their vehicle crossed the center line about 2:30 p.m.

The SUV first hit a car driven by Rena Leera, 44, of Delaware, then collided head-on with a pickup driven by Jeremy Boss, 36, of Dennis, Kan.

Leera was treated and released at a local hospital. Boss was taken to Jane Phillips Medical Center in Bartlesville in serious condition.

Everyone involved in the wreck was wearing a seat belt, troopers said.

April Gilgo, 35, of Shady Point was a passenger on a motorcycle driven by Timmy Sprabary, 44, of Wister. The patrol said Spraberry was driving west on a county road near Hodgen about 4:30 p.m. when he failed to negotiate a curve, and the motorcycle hit a bridge support.

Gilgo was thrown 54 feet. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Sprabary was also thrown from the motorcycle. He was taken to Sparks Hospital in Fort Smith, Ark. With injuries that were not life threatening, troopers said. has disabled the comments for this article.
