The crash occurred 1 3/4 miles southwest of Choctaw on Lake Hiwasse road. The woman's 1952 model sedan was spit in two and fragments of the car were scattered more than a mile along the track. The woman's body was found about 50 feet from the scene of the crash. Mrs. Jackson, wife of Dr. Alvin R. Jackson was alone in the car. Trooper Bob Blackburn said a witness, Kenneth Ferguson, Harrah, who had stopped to wait for the train to pass, said he blinked his headlights to warn Mrs. Jackson, but the car kept coming. Garfield Youngblood, 64, of Tulsa, was killed when his dump truck tumbled into Deep Fork creek on a county road about 150 feet north of the Turner turnpike. Youngblood had been hauling dirt to the creek from the turnpike and his truck backed over the edge of a high bank, fell on its side pinning him beneath the water. Trooper Loyd Francisco said E. M. Duncan, construction foreman took Youngblood to the Sisler clinic at Bristow, but he was dead on arrival."
