The investigation into a deadly traffic collision reported Wednesday morning continued Thursday, but no citations were issued in relation to the accident.
According to police, 48-year-old Angelia Werner died at the scene of the crash after a Lawton Transit Mix truck loaded with six cubic yards of cement rolled over atop her Honda around 11 a.m. at Northwest 38th Street and Gore Boulevard. Werner's car was parked in the turning lane of Northwest 38th Street to head east from the intersection when the truck turned north from Gore Boulevard and toppled on its side, crushing the vehicle.
LPD Capt. Craig Akard said officers conducted more interviews with witnesses Thursday and met with Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers, who helped analyze the cement truck.
Akard said the OHP officials have special equipment they can use to determine the exact weight of the truck, which is crucial for creating the most accurate estimates of vehicle speeds and recreations of the accident.
Emergency responders had to use a crane and several wreckers to lift the cement truck off the Honda before the Lawton Fire Department extracted Werner from the car around 3 p.m. The intersection remained roped off for two more hours, Akard said.
