Elgin Man Killed in Head-On Collision

Posted: Updated:

COMANCHE COUNTY, Okla._

Oklahoma Highway Patrol officers continue to investigate a head-on collision that killed a 63-year-old Elgin man late Saturday night.

Emergency responders were called to Highway 62, just south of Mcintosh Road after troopers said Larry Wilson collided with oncoming traffic just a few miles from his home. Troopers reported Wilson suddenly veered his pickup into the other lane while northbound on Highway 62 that caused him to slam into another pickup driven by a 21- year-old male.

The jaws of life were used to cut Wilson from his truck and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the second vehicle and his passenger were taken to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

Troopers said Wilson was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and that his breath smelled of alcohol.

The accident remains under investigation.
