Two auto accidents leave three dead in state

Three people were killed in separate auto crashes Monday night in eastern and southern Oklahoma.

Michael E. Keigley, 27, of Twin Oaks, was killed in the first crash about 10:30 p.m. on an Adair County road, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Troopers said Keigley was westbound at a high rate of sped when he lost control of his pickup truck in a curve and hit a tree.

Keigley was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the truck, which then landed on him, troopers said.

The second crash occurred just before 11:30 in southern Bryan County and left two Texans dead, the patrol said.

The crash occurred on U.S. 69 just north of the Oklahoma-Texas state line when a tractor-trailer rig driven by Shawn R. Wright, 29, of San Angelo, Texas, ran off the roadway, hit a culvert, an embankment then an overpass, troopers said.

The OHP said Wright was dead at the scene and a passenger, Amber D. Rose, 18, of Christoval, Texas, was taken to a Dallas hospital, where she died Tuesday morning.
