Mayes County, OK (April 30, 2019) – Around 1:00 a.m. on April 27th, Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a collision on South 437 Road, near Pryor.
According to OHP investigations, an 18-year-old female was traveling south along the roadway in a 2008 Pontiac G6. The driver overcorrected the turn, which caused the vehicle to go off the roadway and crash into a tree.
The 18-year-old female and her passenger, 19-year-old Joshua Curtis, were both rushed to nearby hospitals for injuries sustained in the collision. Authorities later reported that Curtis succumbed to his injuries in the hospital.
We would like to offer our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Mr. Curtis. Our thoughts are with them, the injured driver, and her family at this time.
