What caused McKenzie Gee’s death?
Mckenzie Gee, 29, was driving west on the Creek Turnpike, just west of US 75 in Jenks, when she left the road, drove through a turnpike fence, and continued until she hit a house, according to troopers. Christian Flowers, a neighbor, said police officers knocked on his door to inform him that the house next door was on fire. “I just heard a loud boom, and a minute or so later, there’s a couple cops knocking on our door, telling us our next-door neighbor’s house is on fire,” Flowers explained.
It’s unclear what drove Gee off the road and through the fence. The investigation is still going on.
