Sterling man dead following pickup crash; grandson critically injured

Posted: Updated:

Comanche County- Oklahoma Highway Patrol is trying to figure out what caused a pickup crash just east of Lawton that claimed a Sterling man's life and left his grandson in critical condition.

OHP says 62-year-old Kenneth Snider was driving north on Bethel Road when for some reason he ran off the road and hit a tree just north of Townley Road. They say his truck continued on and hit another tree about 25 yards away before coming to a stop. Troopers say Snider was trapped in his truck for more than an hour and died at the scene due to massive injuries.

His three-year-old grandson was flown to OU Medical Center with multiple injuries. He was listed in critical condition at last check.
