A single car crash in Stephens County left one dead and another transported to the hospital early January 17th. According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the crash occurred around 2 a.m. on N2770 Road, four miles west of Duncan. Occupants were identified as Frederick E. Norman, a 34-year-old from Duncan, Oklahoma, and Payton L. Mumford, a 32-year-old from Fox, Oklahoma.
Authorities said the vehicle was traveling southbound on N2770 Road when it veered off the roadway to the left, overcorrecting to the right, and overturning into a barbed wire fence. Reports stated Norman was able to crawl out of the vehicle after it came to rest, but Mumford was ejected.
Norman was transported to United Regional Hospital in Wichita Falls, Texas and was reported as uninjured.
Sadly, Mumford was pronounced dead at the scene. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim.
The cause of the collision and the use of seatbelts is under investigation. Authorities are also investigating the condition of the driver at the time of the accident.
