VINITA, Okla. – A 71 year-old Vinita man was pronounced dead at the scene of a 3-car accident just east of Vinita on SH 60 around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning.
Dead at the scene is Lenvil Lee Dunn who died from massive head injuries. Dunn was pinned in his Corvette for approximately 35 minutes before being freed by the Vinita Fire Department. He was transported to Luginbuel Funeral Home of Vinita for later transport to the Medical Examiners Office in Tulsa.
According to the Oklahoma State Highway Patrolman Rick Mendez, a half ton pickup driven by Connie Clark, 62, of Afton was headed westbound 4/10 of a mile east of Vinita, followed by a tracker trailer driven to Wilhelmina Pollen, 47 of Merritt Island, Fla.
The vehicle driven by Dunn was headed eastbound when for some unknown reason, Clark went left of center, striking Dunn, sending his Corvette into a spin into the path of the semi-trailer that struck him in the drivers side.
Clark was taken to Craig General Hospital where she was treated and released with head injuries. Pollen was not injured.
The cause of the collision and the condition of the driver is under investigation. Seat belts were in use in all three vehicles, according to the troopers report.
