A second man has died following a head-on collision on Peoria Avenue on Saturday.
Samuel Joseph “Sam” West, 31, of Pawhuska died Sunday. Jonathan Darius “J.D.” West, 25, was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the men were brothers.
Sam West was driving a small, white car that swerved into oncoming traffic and struck another vehicle near 63rd Street and Peoria Avenue around 11:30 p.m., police said.
He was admitted to a hospital in critical condition. J.D. West and another passenger were inside the car. The other passenger fled the scene on foot.
Police said the driver of the other vehicle was “not seriously injured,” the Tulsa World previously reported.
A traditional Indian service for both men is scheduled for 8 a.m. Friday at the Indian Camp Chapel in Pawhuska followed by a funeral Mass at 10 a.m. at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.
