UPDATE: Drivers in deadly crash in Jackson County identified

JACKSON COUNTY, Okla_One man died in a two-car crash west of Altus Tuesday afternoon. 

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said 85-year-old James Richeson of Eldorado, Oklahoma, was pronounced dead at the scene after being trapped in the wreckage for about an hour.

Troopers said Richeson was westbound on U.S. Highway 62, seven miles west of Altus, when he struck a pickup that crossed the highway at an intersection with a county road.  The Highway Patrol said the truck was driven by 13-year-old boy who stopped at a stop sign on the county road, but then proceeded to cross the highway directly in the path of the Richeson’s car. 

The pickup’s driver and an 11-year-old passenger were both taken to Jackson County Memorial Hospital where they were treated and released for their injuries.
