A woman was killed and her husband and son critically injured in an Oklahoma car accident Sunday.

According to officials with the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, 51 year-old Judy Shaneyfelt was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, about four miles north of Perry on Interstate 35. Police say she had been pinned inside her vehicle for about 30 minutes after it rolled three times.

Authorities say 53 year-old Rick Shaneyfelt and 20 year-old Ryan Shaneyfelt were in critical condition early Monday at the University of Oklahoma Medical Center in Oklahoma City.

The Shaneyfelts were traveling north on I-35 when the vehicle they were in crossed the center median and rolled, landing on its wheels on the west should of the interstate, police say. All three occupants of the vehicle were wearing seat belts.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims.
