TULSA — Update: The teacher was identified as Central Elementary first grade teacher Maggie DuBois.
We’re told grief counselors will be available for students and staff when classes resume at Central Elementary on Wednesday.
A GoFundMe page was set up and has already raised thousands of dollars.
Two people, including an elementary school teacher, died in a head-on collision late Thursday night, KRMG has learned.
Bixby Public Relations spokeswoman Jennifer Rush confirmed that one of the victims of the crash taught for BPS.
A witness to the crash scene, Jason Cowan, told KRMG three vehicles were involved.
He drove up on the scene shortly after the wreck occurred between Yale and Harvard on East 151st Street in Bixby about 11:30 p.m.
There were three vehicles involved, he says, but at first they only saw two.
“You couldn't see the third vehicle, it looked like the two SUVs had hit each other head-on because they were the only two vehicles sitting on the road,” Cowan said Friday. “They obviously had been in a head-on collision, you could just tell that they were destroyed.”
KRMG obtained an email sent from the principal at Bixby Central Elementary School to parents and staff.
It named the teacher, but because KRMG could not independently confirm the information in the email, we will not release that name at this time.
The email indicated that counselors will be available for staff and students at the school Monday if needed.
