Two Oklahoma women died in accidents Thursday and Friday.

Doris Starr, 76, Claremore

A Claremore woman died Thursday afternoon after a head-on wreck in Rogers County, Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers said.

Starr was pronounced dead at the scene of the wreck about 4 p.m. on State Highway 88 near Oologah.

A car driven by Nathan Hammack, 17, of Oologah, was stopped in the northbound lane of the highway to make a left turn when a second car driven by Kierstin Stapleton, 17, of Oologah, rear-ended Hammack's car, pushing it into oncoming traffic, troopers said.

Starr was heading south and slammed into Hammack's car head-on.

Hammack was treated at a hospital for injuries that were not life threatening. Stapleton and a passenger in her car had minor injuries, but refused treatment from paramedics.

Everyone involved in the wreck was wearing a seat belt.

Summer Clark, 19, Bristow

Clark died after a Friday morning wreck in Okfuskee County, troopers said.

The vehicle in which Clark was a passenger failed to negotiate a curve as it traveled northbound on a county road about seven miles north of Paden.

The vehicle hit an embankment and Clark died at the scene.

The driver of the car, Blake Estill, 22, of Bristow, was taken by helicopter to OU Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition with leg and internal injuries.

Clark and Estill were not wearing seat belts, troopers said.
