Pictured is the 2020 Ford F-250 as one of the vehicles involved in the incident on Jan. 19, 2021.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol continues to investigate the Jan. 19 vehicle accident that killed a Logan County woman, but the department released some of the details on Thursday.

The two-vehicle fatality collision happened on State Highway 33 and Pennsylvania Ave. at approximately 10:32 a.m.

Investigators announced 79-year-old Barbara Heflin, of Crescent, died at the scene.

Heflin was driving a 2015 Chevrolet Impala eastbound on SH-33 and was struck by a 2020 Ford F-250 driven by Mark Gellenbeck, 32, of Guthrie.

According to the report, Gellenbeck was driving westbound and began to reach for something in the passenger seat, went left of center and struck the oncoming vehicle.

The impact caused airbags in both vehicles to deploy.

Troopers identify the cause of collision as “inattention.”

The traffic report shows Gellenbeck refused medical treatment at the scene.
