A California woman has died due to injuries she suffered just over a month earlier in a crash in Tulsa, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
Leticia Lopez, 44, of Fullerton, California, was hospitalized at St John Medical Center in Tulsa, in critical condition November 25, 2021 after a crash involving another vehicle along Interstate 244 near Harvard Avenue about 4 a.m. She died Wednesday, December 29, 2021.
Troopers have not yet determined what happened to cause the crash, but they have reported that Lopez was not wearing her seatbelt in her 2019 Chevrolet Equinox.
A 24-year-old Muskogee woman driving the other vehicle involved, a 2018 Jeep Cherokee, was treated and released from a hospital the same day. Troopers state this is an ongoing investigation and we will update when further information is available.
