LOCUST GROVE — A 29-year-old woman was injured in a two-car crash Monday north of Locust Grove.

According to a report by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Tamrah Briggs, 48, Locust Grove, was driving her 2007 Toyota Tundra north on a county road and stopped to make a left turn into a private drive. Amanda Sightler, 29, also of Locust Grove, was northbound on the same county road, failed to see Briggs’ Tundra, and rear-ended Briggs.

The OHP indicated all three were wearing seat belts. The cause of the crash is listed at driver inattention.
