OHP investigates fatal wreck near Gould

GOULD, Okla._For the second time in as many days, there's been a deadly crash on US Highway 62 in southwest Oklahoma.

On Wednesday, a woman died when her car was crushed by the trailer of a semi-truck that was carrying cattle. It happened around noon near the town of Gould, which is about 25 miles west of Altus. The victim has been identified as 62-year-old Mary Springs, of Eldorado. She was pinned in the wreckage for about four hours, and was pronounced dead at the scene. The cattle truck driver, 47-year-old Chris Stewart, was taken away by a medical helicopter to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City where he is in stable condition with internal injuries. The other semi driver was taken to the Harmon County hospital and has since been released.

OHP still has not released how the crash happened, but the victim's vehicle was ultimately off the highway when the cattle truck toppled and the trailer smashed her pickup.
