Two drivers were killed in recent single-vehicle crashes in northeastern Oklahoma, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
Jarrett Paul Clingan, 42, of Collinsville, died after he was ejected 80 feet from the 2003 Chevrolet pickup he was driving on the exit ramp onto northbound U.S. 75 from westbound Interstate 244 about 3:30 a.m. Monday, troopers said.
The pickup struck a wall, ejecting Clingan, and continued another 1,600 feet on the ramp before stopping, an accident report says.

Holland was driving a 2008 Ford F250 when the pickup failed to negotiate a curve on 201st Street South west of Oklahoma 16 in Creek County at about 4 p.m., troopers said.
The pickup veered off the roadway to the right, Holland overcorrected and the vehicle came to rest on its top after striking a ditch, becoming airborne and hitting a tree, according to an accident report.
