Four people die in vehicle accidents on Oklahoma roads
Four people died in vehicle accidents on Oklahoma roads, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported Wednesday.
Scott Lee Marr, 38, Laverne
About 4:20 p.m. Monday, Marr was a passenger in a vehicle that crashed into a tree in Dewey County. Marr died at the scene from injuries to his head and internal trunk.
The driver, a 16-year-old boy who was treated and released at a Seiling hospital, was going north on U.S. 270 at County Road 0700 when his vehicle went into a broad slide and hit a tree. The vehicle then overturned. Seat belts were worn by Marr and the driver, troopers said.
The name of the driver has not been released.
Brett Anthony Montgomery, 33, Elk City
About 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Montgomery attempted to park a bulldozer he was driving on an embankment, witnesses told troopers. When Montgomery stepped out of the vehicle, the parking break disengaged, and the bulldozer rolled onto him and pinned him, troopers said.
Driver and passenger unidentified
About 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, a driver and passenger who have yet to be identified were traveling southbound on U.S. 283 pulling a camping trailer when their vehicle crossed the center line and collided with an oncoming semitruck.
Both the semitruck and the victims’ vehicle caught fire after leaving the roadway and entering a ditch. The driver of the semitruck escaped the rig without injury.
The driver and passenger of the other vehicle were pinned inside and died at the scene.
