Medics transported two Claremore teens to a Tulsa hospital after they reportedly tried to run over a coyote.
According to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol report, Paden Begley, 17, was driving a 1989 dodge truck north on Sunday on old Oklahoma 88 when he saw a coyote running through a sod farm field.
Begley then reportedly turned the truck into the field to try to run over the coyote, according to the OHP.
The report states that the "coyote took evasive action," and Begley turned the truck sharply to follow the coyote, causing the truck to roll.
The truck's passenger, 17-year-old Taylor Shelton, was able to crawl to the roadway and get the attention of a passing motorist at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday, according to the OHP.
Medics transported both teens, who were reportedly not wearing seat belts, to Saint Francis in stable condition, troopers said.
