Two people dead and another was injured in a Hughes County accident early Friday morning.

Carrie Cross, 57, McAlester, and Kevin D. Mosier, 25, Allen, were dead at the scene of the accident two miles east of Atwood on state Highway 1.

A passenger in Mosier’s pickup truck, Larry Brashier, 43, Allen, suffered injuries to his body and was taken to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where he was listed in good condition, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Mosier was driving east on the highway as Cross was a Ford Taurus driving west. The Chevrolet truck crossed the center line and hit the Taurus head on, throwing Mosier 15 feet from his vehicle, the patrol said.

Neither Mosier or Brashier were wearing seatbelts, according to the OHP.

Cross was wearing a seat belt. She was pinned in the car for approximately an hour before she was freed by members of the Atwood Fire Department.

Trooper Jim Thompson investigated.
