Kaylee Hamilton, 23, and David Vallerand, 43, killed, and two people injured in pedestrian collision on Interstate 40 in Yukon, Oklahoma
Troopers say they are 23-year-old Kaylee Hamilton and 43-year-old David Vallerand.
There were two other pedestrians involved, with one listed in stable condition and the other was treated and released.
Hamilton and Vallerand were described as pedestrians in the patrol news release. The driver of a car involved, Nhut Hong Nguyen, 58, of Oklahoma City, was taken to an Oklahoma City hospital and admitted.
OHP troopers say that the initial vehicle was originally involved in a rollover accident. Another vehicle stopped to help the individuals who were involved in that accident, when their vehicle also rolled over after being struck.
A local community is reeling tonight after learning that an elementary school principal was one of two individuals who lost their lives Friday night after lending a helping hand.
Affectionately known as Coach V, Vallerand was not only a school administrator. He also spent his free time going on mission trips, volunteering for the Special Olympics and coaching youth baseball with the OKC Ambassadors. His former players are now relying on each other for support.
