The pickup was towing a livestock trailer. It hit Potts' Jeep, which rolled. Potts and her six year old son were taken to Mercy Memorial -- they were both treated and released.

Potts' seven year old daughter was flown to OU Medical Center with head and internal injuries. She passed away around 2:45 this morning.
