The Department of Public Safety reports Robert Womack, Elk City, OK, was driving a truck tractor semi-trailer north on Hwy. 81 , while a Pontiac G6 driven by Madison Nicole Waldrip was stopped on the right shoulder of the northbound lane close to Indian Hills Road.
As the truck approached the car, still on the shoulder, made a sudden left turn and entered the roadway in front of the truck. DPS report the driver had no time to make an evasive move and struck the driver’s side killing the driver. The crash remains under investigation.

  1. She was not on the shoulder she had her blinker on and was turning the trucker tried to pass her on the wrong side of the road and hit her! Witch is why her drivers side door is caved in! I was there and saw the whole thing happen from the beging

    • Please quit spreading lies. These stamments were made by the truck driver alone he was actually there and saw the whole thing as well. The facts add up as well stop worrying about how it happened we all lost a family memeber so if you don’t have anything nice to say. Don’t comment! Thank You!

  2. Bowie News PLEASE take a sensitive approach to fatalities such as this & for the sake of the family remove this photo. This view is NOT necessary for reporting.

  3. I would echo the request to remove the photo of the car. I see no reason to publish it. I see it often in this paper. I understand reporting, however this too often crosses the line. Prayers to family.

  4. It should be illegal to post pictures of a fatality accident!! This is insensitive to the family that is morning the loss of their loved one!! Please remove the picture! Show a little respect!

  5. I was first respondent and first to call 911 in the incident. I was driving southbound and did not have a clear view of the first contact in between the cars, but I am confident that by the way the tire marks and contact with the car was made she must have turned from the same lane as the truck driver. All in all, terrible accident. My deepest condolences and prayers to the family. May God be with you in these tough times.
