An Altus woman died and an Elk City man was flown to an Oklahoma City hospital following a Saturday afternoon wreck that ejected each of them from a pickup.

Investigators are attempting to determine who was driving the truck.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported that Dacia Easter, 46, of Altus, and Craig Davis, 56, of Elk City, were flown to OU Medical Center following the wreck in Beckham County.

Easter died at the hospital. She was suffering from an open pelvic fracture and leg injuries.

Davis was admitted in stable serious condition with head and internal trunk injuries.

The couple was in a Ford F150 pickup that failed to negotiate a curve on Oklahoma 34 at 4:46 p.m. Saturday and went off the asphalt roadway to the right for 650 feet before striking the off-road side of the guardrail, Trooper Tyler Smith reported. The truck rolled approximately three times before coming to rest on its wheels, 1 ½-mile north of Beckham County Road 1030, north of Elk City.

Easter and Davis were not wearing seatbelts. They were each ejected during the rollover, Smith reported.

Investigators are trying to determine who was driving, what was the condition of the driver and what caused the wreck, the report states.
