A Marlow woman was killed in a car accident on state highway 7 in Stephens County early Sunday morning.

The accident occurred just before 3 a.m. about a half mile west of county road 294.

According to a report by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, 25-year-old Misty Eggers was heading eastbound on highway 7 in a 2005 Pontiac vehicle when she hydroplaned and went off the roadway to the left.

The vehicle struck a concrete drainage ditch, pinning Eggers for approximately two hours before being freed by the Velma Fire Department. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Troopers say speeding on wet roads was the most likely cause of this accident. Eggers was not wearing a seatbelt.
