A Texas woman and her unborn child were killed in a two-car collision on the HE Bailey Turnpike in McClain County, Saturday morning.
According to a report by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, 27-year-old Isaac Heide was driving northbound on the turnpike in a 2002 Dodge Ram pickup. Also inside the truck were Eva Heide, 25; Jake Heide, 19; and Isaac Heide Jr., 1, all from La Mesa, Texas.
Troopers say Heide apparently made an unsafe lane change from left to right, forcing a second vehicle, a 2007 Chevy HHR driven by 54-year-old Bobbie Jefferson of Duncan, Okla., to take evasive action. Jefferson lost control of his vehicle on the shoulder and over-corrected back onto the highway, striking Heide's vehicle.
Heide then lost control and struck a bridge abutment, rolling 1/4 times and ejecting both Eva and Isaac Jr. Eva was then struck a second time by Jefferson's vehicle after she was ejected from the pickup. Jefferson's vehicle struck Heide's pickup one more time and both vehicles came to rest about 84 feet from the bridge abutment.
Emergency personnel say Eva was pinned for approximately one hour. She was pronounced dead at the scene. It was later discovered at the hospital that she was seven months pregnant. It was there that her unborn child was also pronounced dead.
Jefferson and his passenger, 54-year-old Harvell Jefferson also of Duncan, Okla., were both taken to Integris Hospital where they were treated and released .
Isaac Heide Sr. and Isaac Heide Jr. were both transported to OU Medical Center via Grady/McClain EMS ambulance. Both are listed in serious condition.
Jake Heide was life-flighted to OU Medical Center. He is also listed in serious condition.
OHP Troopers say seatbelts were equipped and in use by all passengers, with the exception of Eva and Isaac Heide Jr.
It is unclear if any charges will be filed in this case. No other information is known at this time.
