GRANT, Okla. (KXII) - A woman and a child were killed, and another was flown to the hospital after a crash with a semi-truck Thursday afternoon in Choctaw County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said it happened on US-271 in Grant at 3 p.m.

Troopers said a vehicle driven by 33-year-old Rekia L. Johnson, of Hugo, was eastbound on County Road 2120, failed to yield from a stop sign, and pulled out in front of a freightliner, driven by 35-year-old John King, of Hugo.

OHP said Johnson and a 4-year-old child were pronounced dead at the scene from head and internal injuries.

Johnson and the child were transported to the Rogan’s Funeral Home.

Another 4-year-old passenger in Johnson’s vehicle was flown to Children’s Medical Center in stable condition with head, internal, and leg injuries.
