A Bristow husband and wife died Thursday in a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of SH 48 and SH 33.
According to an initial report by Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Matt Ledbetter, at around 11:15 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 21, Thelma L. Stevens, 64, of Bristow was driving a 2002 Buick westbound on SH 33. Her husband, Durward Stevens was riding in the passenger seat.
As the couple entered the intersection, a northbound 2012 Acura Sedan, being driven by Christopher S. Hildebrand, 27, of North Las Vegas, Nev. ran the stop sign and struck the Stevens' Buick in the passenger side.
Both Thelma and Deward Stevens expired at the scene from massive injuries sustained in the accident.

The report indicated that neither of the Steven's were wearing their seatbelts and the airbags in the Buick did not deploy.
