CADDO COUNTY — A Lawton woman was killed Tuesday in a collision with an oncoming rock hauler on U.S. Highway 277 in Caddo County, according to Oklahoma State Troopers.

Troopers were called to the intersection of U.S. 277 and County Road 1470, about a half-mile south of Cyril, around 12:52 p.m. Tuesday, where Troopers report an SUV traveling eastbound on CR1470 failed to stop at a stop sign and was struck by an oncoming rock hauler traveling southbound on U.S. 277.

The driver of the 2016 Honda Pilot, Carol J. Cody, 52, of Lawton, was pronounced dead by Troopers at the scene of the collision. The driver of the 2010 Kenworth rock hauler, Keith D. Bush, 68, of Lawton, was not injured.

According to reports filed by Oklahoma State Troopers, Cody was traveling eastbound on CR 1470 when she “failed to stop at the stop sign and was struck by [Bush’s vehicle].” Upon impact, Troopers report Cody’s Honda Pilot “departed the roadway to the right, striking a utility pole before coming to rest.”

Troopers report Cody’s condition at the time of the collision is under investigation. Bush’s condition was reported as “apparently normal.” OHP Troopers were assisted in their investigation by Cyril Fire Department, Apache Fire and EMS, Caddo County Sheriff’s Department and the Cyril Police Department.
