McCurtain Co. man killed after ATV accident

MCCURTAIN COUNTY, OK (KSLA) - A McCurtain County man was killed Thursday evening after crashing an ATV on a dirt road.

Oklahoma State Police say Richard Davis and Rodney Jeffery, both 45-years-old and from Haworth, OK, were riding the ATV just before 9:00 p.m. on a dirt road southeast of Haworth. Troopers say Davis was driving the ATV too fast on the road and lost control. Davis and Jeffrey were both thrown from the 4-wheeler.

Davis was taken to McCurtain Memorial Hospital in Idabel where he later died from head injuries. Jeffrey also went to the hospital for unknown injuries to his head and leg.

Troopers say neither rider was wearing a helmet.
