MILBURN, Okla. -- A pregnant woman died early Saturday morning from injuries suffered after her sport utility vehicle was hit by an 18-wheeler near Milburn on Friday.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said 19-year-old Angela Taylor of Milburn failed to stop as she pulled out from Condon Grove Road to State Highway 78. Her GMC Yukon was hit by the big rig.

The impact sent the SUV careening into a tree in front of the Condon Grove Cemetery.

Taylor was pinned in the wreckage for nearly 30 minutes before emergency crews from the Milburn and Tishomingo fire departments could get her out.

Taylor was airlifted to OU Medical Center in critical condition.  The OHP said she passed away at 4:39 a.m. Saturday.

The truck driver, 45-year-old Michael Rankin of McAlester, suffered an arm injury and was taken to Mercy Hospital in Durant for treatment.

Highway 78 was shut down for three-and-a-half hours after the crash.
