ROGERS COUNTY, Oklahoma - One person is dead after a head-on crash on Highway 20 near Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said 91-year-old Ray Jenkins of Claremore died at the hospital.
OHP said that Jenkins was driving a truck eastbound when for some reason he made a U-turn and drove westbound in the eastbound lane.
A car was driving eastbound when the two vehicles hit head-on. News On 6 spoke with one man who witnessed the crash and then rushed over to help.
“This is a bad intersection … I couldn't tell you who was at fault cause it’s still dark but after they crashed I immediately ran out there and got the old man out of the car and had CPR done to him,” said witness Joe Maggard.
Both drivers were sent to the hospital immediately. Jenkins who was in critical condition when he left the scene has died there in the hospital.
The other driver has a back injury but is expected to be okay.
