Two people were killed and 1 person is in critical condition after an early morning accident on State Highway 20 in Osage County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said a 2008 Ford Taurus driven by Cameron Clark, 33, of Vinita was headed westbound on OK-20 around 5:54 a.m., 5 miles east of Hominy and just east of Wildhorse Road, when his vehicle crossed over the center line into the eastbound lanes.

Clarks’ car collided head-on with a 2007 Honda Odyssey operated by Joe Drummond, 73, of Hominy, troopers said. Drummond’s vehicle rolled about ¾ of a turn after being hit and came to rest on the passenger side. Clark was pinned in the vehicle for 30 minutes before being extricated by the Hominy Fire Department.

Clark was pronounced dead at Ascension-St. John Hospital in Owasso due to his injuries. Drummond was pronounced dead at the scene by a medical examiner. His passenger, 67-year-old Priscilla Drummond of Hominy, was taken by Skiatook EMS to Ascension-St. John Medical Center in Tulsa and admitted in critical condition with head, trunk, arm and leg injuries.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation by OHP. Conditions were dry and clear at the time, authorities said.
