Bryan County, OK (July 14, 2019) – Oklahoma Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a fatal crash that occurred around 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 13th. The crash involved three vehicles along U.S. 70 and happened just west of Durant.
According to police, a 2000 Volvo collided with a 2017 Chevrolet while traveling east along the aforenamed road. The impact of the crash forced the Chevrolet into the opposite lane, where it subsequently crashed into a 1980 Ford.
Randy Kinyon, 47, of Henderson, Texas, and Shelley Lynn Mayo, 46, of Caddo, were passengers in separate vehicles and both died in the collision. Authorities stated that four others were hurt in the crash and transported to nearby hospitals. Two of the four have been released.
Officials have reported that the initial crash was caused on purpose by the 52-year-old male driver of the Volvo. The driver is believed to have been intoxicated and fled the scene uninjured. The suspect has not been charged at this time.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of both Randy Kinyon and Shelley Lynn Mayo at this time. We pray for the injured victims in hopes of a full recovery.
