Story follows:

Tulsa - A noted pool player and his girlfriend, stranded after their car broke down, were killed after being struck by two vehicles on the Broken Arrow Expressway, the Tulsa Police Department said Monday. Dead are: Elyse Cannon, 18, Tulsa and Tyler Strawn, 20, Broken Arrow. Cannon and Strawn were killed about 9:30 p.m. Sunday, said Jason Willingham, Tulsa Police Department spokesman. They died at the scene, he said.

Cannon was a cosmetology student, and Strawn was expected to report to his first day of work Monday at a national retail chain store, a Fitzgerald Southwood Colonial Chapel representative said. Strawn was an accomplished pool player and a two-time Billiard Congress of America National Champion. He was a top 10 player when he died.

The car broke down against the center barrier, and the couple tried to cross four lanes of the eight-lane Broken Arrow Expressway to summon help. Willingham said the couple were hit once by a vehicle driven by [removed] of Tulsa and were hit a second time by a vehicle driven by [removed] of Broken Arrow. Willingham said no foul play is suspected, he said.

It was just a very bad and tragic accident Willingham said. No charges are expected to be filed, he said.
