A 14- year-old boy from Pryor was killed Saturday while riding an ATV on a dirt road in Locust Grove. Cody Dee Cramer was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident from head and trunk, and internal injuries.
According to Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports, the accident occurred at 7 p.m. on private property 6.5 miles east and 3.5 miles north of Locust Grove in Mayes County. Cramer was riding a 1999 Polaris 400 ATV westbound on a dirt trail when he approached another dirt trail intersection. He attempted to turn right and overturned one and a half times. OHP Trooper Derek Humphrey’s report states Cramer was not wearing a helmet.
Later that evening, at approximately 9:45 p.m. a 2003 Ford Taurus and a 2003 Ford pick-up collided in front of the Grand Lake Casino, 9 miles northeast of Grove, causing traffic to stop for a short time. Tack Nail Linn, 34, of Grove and driver of the Taurus, was transported with head and trunk and internal injuries
by Grove EMS. He was treated and released.
The pick-up was driven by Richard Doyle, 58 of Wyandotte. Doyle was transported by life-flight in stable condition to Freeman Hospital in Joplin with head and trunk and internal injuries. Linn was driving northbound when he turned into the path of Doyle who was heading southbound. The right front of the pickup hit the rear side of the Taurus. According to the OHP report prepared by Trooper Scott Green, seat belts were used in both cars.
