STILLWATER – A man died late Thursday after a rollover collision caused by a deer on Oklahoma 51, troopers said.
Weldon Drew, 77, died at Stillwater Medical Center around 11:45 p.m., according to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol report.
Drew was a passenger in a 2006 Buick Enclave sports utility vehicle that veered to the right to avoid hitting a deer in the roadway on Oklahoma 51 about 7 miles west of Stillwater around 7:15 p.m., troopers said. The Enclave then swerved left, struck a ditch and rolled twice.
The SUV’s driver, Clara Drew, 60, was treated and released for head and internal trunk injuries, the report states.
The Drews were both wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident.
