JOHNSTON COUNTY – One person died Saturday morning after exiting a moving vehicle about 4 1/2 miles west of Coleman.

Vicky Wheeler, 60 of Milburn was driving a 2015 Jeep Wrangler less than 1,000 feet south of State Highway 48A on Callan Road when the incident occurred, according to a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Karen Walls, 59 of Milburn, intentionally jumped out of the vehicle and struck her head on the ground, the report said. She was pronounced dead at Mercy Hospital in Tishomingo by an emergency room doctor.

OHP Troop F was assisted in the investigation by the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office and Fillmore Volunteer Fire Department.

    Vicky never ever drove that jeep. She couldn’t manage to get in the driver’s seat. You deserved better than this Karen.

  2. Darlene says:

    I guess that’s why her ex husband was at the house with Craig, the brother in law, while all the other family was with Vicky at the scene. Someone needs to check the cameras that are all over the house, I bet they’ve been erased. Vicky has never driven Karen’s jeep. She cannot manage to get in and out of the driver’s side. This is fishy as hell! I know Karen was not suicidal!

    Karen was the sweetest and most loving soul! Knowing her makes me believe something is terribly wrong here; as just days before she celebrated one of the happiest moments of her life. She was in the best of spirits and was looking forward to her bright future with loved ones. Karen’s effervescent smile, vibrant personality, and warm heart makes me question this entire “accident”. Not one second of this event speaks of Karen and I pray this unspeakable tragedy is investigated to the fullest. To Karen’s family – I’m just as confused and inconsolable as you all are. May peace and love find its way to you during these dark times. Truth will find its way, it always does. God bless.

    Vicky and Karen was so much I love they was the best of friends this makes no sense at all! I don’t believe for one second that this is an accident. Something isn’t right here. And my heart goes out to Vicky and family and friends of Karen. I’m in utter shock!
