Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials said the crash occurred at 6:35 a.m. on State Highway 58 about 2 miles south of Fairview. 22 year-old Nicholas Dakota Coppock of Cleo Springs, was southbound in a 2018 Chevrolet 2500 truck, while 65 year-old Barbara Shrum of Fairview, was northbound in a 2001 Lincoln sedan.

DA)--Construction is set to start this week for "Under Her Wing was the Universe." According to Enid news and Eagle, activity on the downtown artwork, located south of the Central National Bank Center, comes after recent delivery of the structure's steel to the site and the approval of surfacing for the project. After running into a number of obstacles with the surfacing, including price and material determined to be too flammable, project artist Romy Owens settled on a 3/8-inch galvanized, vinyl-coated steel cable that will be printed in custom colors in a spectrum from a dark blue to a medium blue.  Owens presented the surfacing during an update on the project to Enid city commissioners in a study session earlier this month. The new material has been approved by the fire marshal. As for the steel framework for the project that was recently delivered, it came primed in a rustic color with plans for professional painters to spray the steel in a dark shade of blue to complement the steel cable. There will be 14 towers that each will be independent welded structures interlocked together with the steel cable connecting and creating stability. The starlights will fit underneath the surfacing with their own cabled system of lights with individual bulbs controlled to be star points, Owens said. In total, she said, there will be about 47 strands of lights making up about 1,000 "stars" overhead. Underneath the structure, an ADA concrete walkway will be constructed with some benching. The steel beams for the artwork will have concrete footings four feet deep, wide and long. Entry lights will mark entry points to the walkway, and the entirety of the path will feature ADA compatible lighting aiming down to illuminate the path, Owens said.  There's also a plan to plant at least 10 to 20 Oklahoma-native Redbud and Chinese pistache trees, Owens said, along with tall grasses, native grasses and wildflowers. The city's Parks and Recreation department will take over maintenance of the prairie-like surroundings. The project in its entirety won't be completed until at least spring, when the landscaping portion of the project can be planted and grown. When commissioners asked Owens during the study session if she had enough money to complete the project, Owens said she's still short of the fundraising goal. According to the project's GoFundMe page, $177,277 of $232,500 has been raised. For information on the project, go to www.romyowens.comwww.gofundme.com/under-her-wing-was-the-universe or the project's Facebook page at "Under Her Wing was the Universe."
