Two Oklahoma men died in overnight vehicle accidents on state roads, including a man who was struck twice by passing vehicles after an earlier wreck, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Dead are:

Kamenski Donray Watson, 27, Moore.

Watson died when two passing vehicles struck him as he stood next to his car, which was disabled in the inside lane of traffic after a wreck when he fell asleep at the wheel, the patrol said.

Watson’s original wreck occurred about 1:15 a.m. as he was eastbound on the H.E. Bailey Turnpike south of Lawton, the patrol said. The car’s tail lights and emergency flashers were off.

He was standing behind his car when Tina M. Seifert, 34, of Lawton collided with him and the car in her pickup, the patrol said. Watson’s car was pushed into the median, and Watson remained on the roadway.

Another vehicle then ran over Watson and continued without stopping, the patrol said. Troopers said they had no description of the vehicle or its driver.

A patrol dispatcher said this morning troopers are looking for the hit-and-run driver.

Seifert was treated for a head injury at a nearby hospital and released, the patrol said. It was not known if she was wearing a seat belt.

Thomas James Lee Kelly, 23, Wagoner.

Kelly died at the scene of a one-vehicle Wagoner County wreck about 12:50 a.m. today, the patrol said.

He was eastbound in his truck on Whitehorn Cove Road northeast of Wagoner when he failed to negotiate a curve and struck a tree, the patrol said.

Troopers said Kelly was not wearing a seatbelt. The cause of the wreck is under investigation.
