A 4-year-old boy is among four people killed in auto accidents in Oklahoma during the weekend, authorities said.

Devon Andrew Lee Grove, 4, of Waukomis died about 6:15 p.m. Saturday when a pickup truck driven by his father backed over him, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.

Wesley Clint Grove, 27, was backing the truck on a private driveway in Garfield County at the time of the accident, troopers said.

Two men were killed in a one-car crash near Poteau just after midnight Sunday, the OHP said.

Daniel L. Childress, 22, of Poteau and Christopher Caldwell, 29, of Howe were killed when the car they were riding in went out of control and ran off a LeFlore County road, hitting a tree.

And Jessica M. Boggan, 26, of Fresno, California, died in a single-car crash on Interstate 244 in Tulsa about 1:45 a.m. Sunday.

Boggan was a passenger in a car that ran off the interstate and hit a light pole, according to troopers.
