Mother and Daughter from Texas Die in Oklahoma Car Crash
Posted on Jul 05, 2013
An Oklahoma car crash on the Will Rogers Turnpike claimed the lives of a mother and daughter. The victims, Beatric Trevino, 44, and Konnie Flores, 16, were both from Edcouch, Texas. The accident took place around 2 a.m. in Rogers County, Oklahoma.
Cathryn Storey, 46, of Ketchem, was driving her 2012 Chrysler eastbound on I-44 Will Rogers Turnpike near MM258, about three miles east of Claremore. Her passenger was Erika Kunkel, 21, of Norman. Authorities aren't sure why, but Storey struck another car that was also driving eastbound. The other car was a 1994 Chevrolet Suburban, being driven by Rodolfo Maganas, 44, of Elsa, Texas. In that car were the two previously mentioned victims, as well as Tammy Maganas and Salvador Flores Jr., both 42 years old.
Once Storey's vehicle hit the driver's side of the car Rodolfo Maganas was driving, Maganas swerved off and back on to the road, and then the vehicle rolled over more than once. It hit a guardrail, and when it stopped, it was right side up again. Storey's car went off the road and hit a guardrail.
Storey and Kunkel were not injured at all, but the people traveling in the Suburban needed to be treated. Rodolfo was transported to St. John's Hospital in Tulsa and was admitted in good condition. Tammy Maganas also went to St. John's Hospital where she was treated and released. Salvador Flores Jr. was transported to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa and was admitted in good condition. Beatric Trevino and Konnie Flores both died at the scene, sustaining injuries to the head, trunk (internal and external), arms, and legs.
We send our most sincere condolences to the families of the women who lost their lives in this tragic crash.
