Two people died Tuesday as a result of separate crashes on state roads, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol and police reported.

Edwin Charles Bulstrode III, 26, Enid

Bulstrode was killed when the sport utility vehicle he was driving was struck by a train about 2:20 p.m. Tuesday, said police spokesman Capt. Jack Morris.

Bulstrode was driving south in the 300 block of N 42 Street when he crossed railroad tracks and was hit by a westbound train on the driver’s side.

The railroad crossing has warning signs posted but no lights or crossing bars, Morris said.

Glendon Ray Cofer, 70, Lawton

Cofer was in a two-vehicle collision about 4:30 p.m. April 21 in Comanche County. He died Tuesday due to injuries suffered in the crash, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.

Cofer was eastbound on SE Bishop Road when he failed to yield at a stop sign, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol report. A second vehicle traveling south on SE 75 struck Cofer’s vehicle, and Cofer was pinned for about 20 minutes, troopers said.

Seat belts were worn by all involved, troopers said.
