Woman Dies in Kay County Collision

Posted: Updated:

A woman was killed in a collision Wednesday afternoon.

43-year-old Janet Butzback of Blackwell was driving a 2001 Ford Escort northbound on T Street when her car was struck by a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck which had failed to yield to a vehicle to the right at the intersection of T Street and Tower Road—according to a OHP Troop K report.

The report indicated that the Chevy broadsided the Ford on the driver's side and that both vehicles ran off the road. The Chevy reportedly came to rest on its passenger side, and the Ford reportedly came to rest on its top.

The accident happened just after 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, northwest of the city limits of Ponca City.

Butzback was pronounced dead at the scene and was taken to Grace Memorial Funeral Home in Ponca City.

26-year-old Colt Bohon of Ponca City, the driver of the Chevy, was taken to Ponca City Hospital and later released with head, arm, and torso injuries.

The OHP report indicated that Bohon was not wearing a seatbelt but that Butzback was. Airbags deployed in both vehicles.

Authorities investigating the scene, Oklahoma Highway Patrol Troop K, believed the cause of the accident was "inattention - distraction inside vehicle" on the part of Bohon.
