About 4:15 p.m. Thursday (editor's note: this is a change from the story published in the paper Friday which said the accident happened Tuesday), McCool was driving a sport utility vehicle east on State Highway 266 in Rogers County when he attempted to pass a tractor-trailer and crashed head-on into the westbound car Colyer was driving, according to the patrol report. Colyer and his passenger, Benner, both died at the scene. McCool died at a Tulsa hospital, troopers said. McCool was not wearing a seat belt.
