HARRAH, Oklahoma -- The Harrah Police Department has released the name of a woman they say crashed into an elementary school and then into a house Wednesday morning.

Police say 47-year-old Riki Ivie was suicidal and had threatened to kill herself Tuesday by driving into oncoming traffic. Police say Wednesday morning, Ivie drove her car into a back building at Russell Babb Elementary School at N.E. 10th Street and Tim Holt Drive. Moments later, she crashed into a house.

The school building Ivie crashed into was empty, so no students were hurt. It's not known if anyone was inside the house. Ivie was injured and taken to Midwest City hospital. Her condition is not known.

Police say Ivie may have overdosed on her medication. They are still investigating the crash and will release more information as it becomes available.
