Sunday, June 7, 2020, Atoka County Emergency Crews responded to a two vehicle collision on Highway 69 by the Lovely Lady Fruit Stand in Tushka.
Stephanie Lashuay of Tushka was traveling with a minor child south on Highway 69, in a red 2003 Dodge Neon, when she pulled into the parking lot of Lovely Lady. She parked behind a black truck pulling a camper, and proceeded to re-latch the trunk of the car.
After securing the latch, Lashuay reentered her vehicle and attempted to join southbound traffic.
Adelle Marie Digneault from Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania was traveling south on Highway 69 in a semi freight truck owned by Black Sea Transportation.
Lashuay did not yield to Digneault, driving into the back half of the semi’s trailer. The Neon became trapped under the trailer’s rear right tires, and was pulled 45 feet after the impact.
The back of the Neon was dragged down the length of the parked camper trailer. Once free, Lashuay’s vehicle came to a rest facing south.
Digneault’s vehicle sustained a broken rear axle on the cargo trailer and required to be towed. Lashuay’s vehicle was totaled, requiring a wrecker to tow it from the scene.
Lashuay and her minor passenger were air lifted to Medical City Plano where they were treated. The minor suffered a concussion, and Lashuay had shoulder injuries; both were released Sunday, June 7.
