UPDATE: Child dies in Thursday crash near Springtown
Here is a quick update on the crash we posted earlier this week on Thursday. The details are very tough to report. We extend our thoughts and prayers to this family.
At around 3pm on Thursday afternoon, a vehicle traveling southbound on Williams Ward Road failed to yield the right-of-way at a stop sign at the Highway 199 intersection. The vehicle was struck by another vehicle traveling westbound on Highway 199.
The driver of the vehicle that failed to yield was pregnant and airlifted to the hospital in critical condition. Unfortunately, the pregnant female’s child was killed as a result of her injuries.
The others injured in the crash were transported with non-life-threatening injuries.
Springtown PD is investigating the crash.
