A woman who may have been involved in a shootout at a convenience store is responsible for an accident that killed a local priest and seminary student. News On 6 reported earlier, a Catholic mass was held today honoring the two men.
Authorities say the accident happened on August 21, when a car with bullet holes up and down the side sped through a red light at a busy intersection of 36th Street North and North Cincinnati Avenue in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Police believe the woman driving the car may have been fleeing the scene of a shootout at a nearby convenience store, when she ran the light in a White Chevy Impala and slammed into a Nissan Altima driven by the priest. The collision caused the cars to crash into a Red Mustang stopped at the red light. No one in the Mustang was injured in the accident; however, the woman driving the Impala had to be transported to a nearby hospital and was listed in serious condition upon arrival. The 32-year-old priest and seminary student of the same age were declared dead at the scene when medical personnel arrived.
