Lawton Teen Dies after Crashing into Power Pole

LAWTON, Okla._

Police were called to investigate an early morning collision that killed 19-year-old Jalen Southern Saturday morning.  

Police found Southern's pickup wrapped around a power pole near Stonegate and 73rd Street around 4 a.m. where he was pronounced dead.

Police used the jaws of life to remove Southern's body. 

 

"It crossed the center line, over-corrected and went to a broadside skid where it struck the curb and rolled one and half times before it struck the utility pole, " said Lawton Police Lieutenant Jim Cowley.

Cowley said police shut down Cache Road from 67th to 73rd Street for six hours as police reconstructed the accident.

Police haven't determined if speed or alcohol  played a role in Southern's death but said they didn't believe he was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash.
