TAHLEQUAH — A one-car accident killed two Oaks brothers, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Randall Leon Wickless, 16, and Wendall Wickless, 11, both of Oaks, died at the scene of an accident about 18 miles north of Tahlequah shortly before 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, the patrol said.

Neither boy was wearing a seat belt.

The older brother was driving north on State Highway 82A when he missed a curve and went to the right, overcorrected and crossed the  roadway in a broadside and struck a tree, the patrol said.

He was thrown about five feet, the patrol said.
