CLAREMORE, Okla. - Two Claremore teenagers were hospitalized Sunday night after they took a pick-up truck off road to hit a coyote and rolled.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol report, the accident happened Sunday night when Paden Begley, 17, with his passenger Taylor Shelton, 17, driving a Dodge pick-up on Old State Highway 88 north of County Road 435 in Rogers County saw a coyote running in the field of a sod farm.
He turned the vehicle into the field to try to run over the coyote, but when the coyote “took evasive action,” the driver turned the truck sharply to attempt to follow the coyote and caused the vehicle to roll.
Shelton crawled to the roadway and at around 11:30 p.m. was able to attract the attention of a passing motorist.
According both teens were admitted St Francis Hospital in Tulsa in stable condition with head and various injuries.
They were not wearing seat belts at the time of the accident, according to troopers.
