Two people died in separate crashes on Oklahoma roadways Thursday, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.

Donnie Fryhover, 64, of Monroe

Fryhover was killed shortly after 1 p.m. Thursday in LeFlore County when a tractor-trailer smashed into his car as Fryhover was making a left turn, troopers reported.

Fryhover and the truck, driven by David White Webb, 57, were both headed east on U.S. 59 about a mile west of Rhino Road in LeFlore County Thursday afternoon when Fryhover slowed to make a left turn into a private drive.

Webb, of Fort Smith, Ark., tried to pass Fryhover’s vehicle on the left and struck Fryhover’s driver’s side door as Fryhover was turning.

Fryhover was pronounced dead at the scene. Webb was not injured.

Ricky Richardson, 31, of Wayne

Richardson was killed in a crash at 9:35 p.m. Thursday in McClain County, troopers said.

Richardson was driving south on U.S. 77 just south of 186th Street when his pickup crossed the center line, striking another pickup, driven by Jason Mills, 39, of Wayne, troopers said.

Mills drove himself to Purcell Medical Center after the crash. Richardson was pronounced dead at the scene. Two juvenile passengers in Richardson’s pickup, ages 6 and 8, were taken in fair condition by helicopter to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. Both had internal, leg and arm injuries, troopers said.

A third passenger in Richardson’s pickup, Angel Elkins, 28, of Wayne, refused medical treatment at the scene, troopers said.
