Silkwood's car was found in this ravine 2 miles South of the Kerr-McGee Cimmaron River Plutonium Processing Plant after an apparent accident in 1974. She was driving South on Highway 74 to Oklahoma City when her car was either forced off the road, or she veered off the highway as a result of too much alcohol or drug use.

When the Oklahoma Highway Patrol was called out...What hospital was Karen taken to? I can not seem to find this answer anywhere, and its vital in my research. thank anyone can email me with the answer. Thank You so much

Mercy Hospital is about 20 minutes South of this location. At the time, it was the closest medical center to this area.
