JOHNSTON COUNTY, Oklahoma (KXII) - A young mother is dead at the hands of a man troopers say doesn’t have a drivers license.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the crash happened around 7:45 a.m. on State Highway 1, just south of the State Highway 7 interchange near Troy.

Troopers say Johannah Turnmire, 24, of Sulphur was driving with her 2-year-old son, when Efrain Ramirez-Hernandez, 28, of Oklahoma City hit them head on while trying to pass a semi-truck.

She was pronounced dead at the scene and her son was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.

Hernadez and his passenger were flown to an Oklahoma City hospital.

Hernandez is in jail charged with first-degree manslaughter and driving without a license.

He’s also on an immigration hold.
