One dead, one injured following early morning accidents

LAWTON, Okla._ One driver is dead after police say he lost control of his vehicle, slammed into a guardrail and was ejected.

The deadly accident happened between 3-4 a.m. along Rogers Lane, past 82nd Street near Highway 62.

A preliminary investigation by LPD officers shows Justin Mayo, of Indiahoma, possibly fell asleep behind the wheel.

Police say the vehicle was unrecognizable; but, Mayo, 31, was most likely ejected out of the driver side window.

There were no witnesses and police tell 7News the Dodge pickup truck remained in the middle of Rogers Lane for up to an hour, which caused a separate accident shortly before 4 a.m. Police say the driver of a vehicle, headed east, did not see the truck in the middle of the road and crashed. That man was sent to the hospital with minor injuries.

The Lawton Police Department has notified Mayo’s family.
