Friends and family remember a woman killed in a deadly car accident on the Will Rogers Turnpike on Thursday.

Michelle Hall, 38, died after losing control of her car going off an overpass. Her child was in the car and was taken to a Tulsa hospital.

"There's a little curve at the hill crest. She appeared to miss the curve, and over-steered to the left, went over the guardrail and down onto the turnpike," said Trooper Scott Shropshire.

Troopers said Hall died on impact.

A truck driver was able to get the child out of the safety seat before the car caught fire; the child is said to be stable.

A cross has been placed at the accident site in memory of Hall.

A neighbor who has lived near the curve for four decades said this bridge has been a problem area in the past.

"It's not a real safe spot. Having lived here as long as we have, we're aware of it," said Donald Dushay.

Dushay has a home just up from the crash site; he heard the accident when it happened.

"I see this quite frequently because right around here seems to be an area where we see quite a few wrecks," he said.

Troopers have not said why they believe Hall lost control of the car.
