      59-Year-Old Man Dead in Tahlequah Wreck

      A 59-year-old Park Hill man has passed away after a wreck Saturday afternoon south of Tahlequah.

      The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports the two vehicles involved were heading southbound on State Highway 82 around 3 p.m. Saturday.

      One vehicle was stopped, yielding to traffic and attempting to turn left when another vehicle reportedly struck the vehicle from the rear.

      The driver of the car that was struck from behind was pinned and eventually pulled from the vehicle by members of the Keys Volunteer Fire Department.

      The driver was identified as Robert Hutchison. He was transported a hospital in Tahlequah where he passed away.

      In the second vehicle was a 40-year-old driver and two 15-year-old males. None of the occupants of that vehicle suffered major injuries.

      The OHP is still investigating the collision.
