One person is dead and another is critically injured in Logan County after three-car wreck involving a semi-truck.
45-year-old Gayle Lynn Lanoy of Piedmont was westbound on Oklahoma 33 in a 2021 Toyota 4Runner about 8:30 a.m. when she attempted a legal stop on the two-lane stretch of highway to make a left turn.
A westbound tractor-trailer rig driven by a 57-year-old Oklahoma man struck the 4Runner, the report states, and Lanoy’s vehicle then crossed into the path of a 2017 GMC pickup. Lanoy was ejected about 30 feet when the eastbound pickup struck her vehicle, troopers said.
Lanoy was pronounced dead at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center in Oklahoma City. She was initially taken to Mercy Medical Center in Guthrie but was later flown to the OKC hospital. She died from head, arm, leg and internal and external torso injuries, according to Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials.
The driver of the pickup, a 39-year-old Edmond man, was pinned about a half hour before being extricated by Guthrie firefighters. He was also transported by air to an Oklahoma City hospital; troopers report he was in critical condition.
The driver of the tractor-trailer rig was not injured.
The cause of the crash and further details remain under investigation, according to Oklahoma Highway Patrol’s preliminary collision report.
