The cause of two-vehicle accident Feb. 7 that claimed the life of an 82-year-old Claremore woman is still under investigation.
According to information from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, dead is 82-year-old Lou Anna Nichols.
The accident happened around 7:39 a.m. Feb. 7 on State Highway 20 at County Road NS 4120, which is approximately 1 mile west of Claremore in Rogers County.

Troopers said Nichols “failed to yield from stop sign” and was struck in the driver side by the Highlander.
Nichols “expired at scene from massive injuries,” and Moody was transported by Pafford EMS with arm and leg injuries to St. John’s Hospital in Tulsa where she was treated and released. One passenger in her vehicle, a 13-year-old Claremore boy was also transported by Pafford EMS to St John’s where he was treated and released for leg injuries.
