Mysha Randa Crow, 19, died Thursday afternoon at OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.
Crow was a passenger in a pickup driven by John Wayne St. Clair, 41, Calera. According to the patrol, the pickup was westbound on State Highway 7 when the driver fell asleep, drove off the road and struck an embankment.
Crow was pinned for approximately 25 minutes before being freed by Tishomingo firefighters using an emergency extraction tool. She was then flown to OU Medical Center.
St. Clair was not injured and he was the only one wearing a seat belt, according to Trooper Joe Jefferson’s report.
Funeral services for Crow are pending with Coffey-Murray Funeral Home.
In other news, a man burned in a house fire is recovering and expected to be moved from the intensive car unit to a hospital room.
Robert Shane Howell, 38, was flown to Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas, after a fire early Thursday morning at 205 E. Locust Street.
When firefighters arrived, the house was fully engulfed and both occupants had escaped.
According to authorities, Howell suffered first-and-second-degree burns to his arms, face, back and feet. He is in stable condition. The other occupant, Margret Shadden, was not injured, according to the fire department. Shadden is Howell’s mother.
The fire destroyed the home. Durant Fire Marshal Lisa Jackson said the fire appeared to have been caused by an electrical malfunction, possibly from two electrical heaters that were in use. She is continuing to investigate the cause.
