NEWS Westmore High School mourns student’s death after fatal car crash

A makeshift floral memorial Friday adorned the site of a deadly car crash Thursday afternoon that killed a Westmoore High School student.

MOORE — Police are investigating the death of a high school student in a fatal car crash Thursday, the latest in a string of tragedies in the community over the past decade.

The collision occurred around noon Thursday near the intersection of SW 134 and Pennsylvania Avenue. Three vehicles — two pickup trucks and a sedan — were traveling east when the crash occurred, police said. At least one truck hit a tree.

“One car was in the left lane, one car was in the right lane, and the other car was turning left in front of them,” Sgt. Gary Knight of the Oklahoma City Police Department. One of the drivers “didn’t leave enough stopping distance for the car that was turning left in front of them, so he tried to turn, and that’s when he not only hit the car, he hit him into the car.” The car in the car was next to him.”
