ROGERS COUNTY, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says two teenagers are in a Tulsa hospital after trying to run over a coyote in a field in rural Rogers County Sunday night.

Troopers say Paden Begley, 17, of Oologah was driving on Old Highway 88 when he saw a coyote in a sod farm field.

The OHP report says Begley drove his 1989 Dodge pickup truck into the field in an attempt to hit the coyote. When the coyote "took evasive action," troopers say, Begley turned the pickup sharply causing it to roll one time.

The report states a passenger in the pickup, 17-year-old Taylor Shelton of Claremore, crawled back to the road and was able to flag down a driver who reported the crash to the OHP.

Both teens were taken to the hospital with head, leg and internal injuries. Neither teen was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

No word in the OHP report on what happened to the coyote.
