Clayton, OK (August 9, 2019) – Around 7:45 a.m. on August 8th, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Sardis Lake Road just north of Clayton.
According to reports, a GMC was traveling south along the roadway when it approached an area where a motor vehicle accident occurred. The driver of the GMC slowed their vehicle to help an individual who was standing on the side of the road.
As the GMC came to a stop, it was struck from behind by a 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser.
A 7-year-old girl inside the PT Cruiser was seriously injured and rushed to Talihina Hospital for treatment.
The young child was pronounced deceased shortly after arriving at the hospital.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the child who lost her life in this incident.
