Pottawatomie County, OK (July 10, 2019) – It was recently reported on Wednesday, July 9th, that the victim of a serious accident in Pottawatomie County has recently succumbed to her injuries. The original crash happened on Thursday, June 27th, at the intersection of US-177 and Coker Road.
The recently deceased was identified as 76-year-old Joyce Richardson. She had originally been taken to the Oklahoma University Medical Center after the collision.
Reports from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol indicated that she was a passenger in a 2005 Chevrolet pickup truck, driven by 77-year-old Ross Richardson, which was traveling north on Coker Road when he failed to yield the right-of-way to traffic on US-177 westbound.
A 2015 Toyota Yaris driven by 23-year-old John Eaton struck the Chevy, according to OHP.
Both Eaton and Ross Richardson sustained injuries, but Joyce Richardson was in critical condition until Wednesday, when she passed away.
The crash is currently under investigation.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Joyce Richardson at this time.
