4 Killed When Plane Crashes On Turnpike

Compiled From Wire Services

A small single-engine aircraft crashed on the Cimarron Turnpike early Saturday, killing three people. A fourth person died when her vehicle ran into into a sheriff’s car parked at the scene.

The Cessna 172 apparently was trying to make an emergency landing when it clipped a power line and smashed into the turnpike’s eastbound lanes about 30 miles west of Tulsa.

The motorist was killed about an hour after the crash when her vehicle collided with a sheriff department’s car stopped in the westbound lane.
