Two Teens Hospitalized After Trying to Run Over Coyote With Truck

Posted: Updated:

Two teenagers were hospitalized this weekend after they tried to run over a coyote with their truck.

The two 17-year-olds were driving a pickup truck on Old State Highway 88 in Rogers County on Sunday night.

They saw a coyote running in the field of a sod farm and drove into the field to run over the animal, according to a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

The investigating OHP trooper said the coyote took "evasive action" to get away from the truck. The driver turned the vehicle sharply in an attempt to follow the animal causing it to roll over one time.

After the rollover one of the teens crawled to the roadway and was able to attract the attention of a passing driver, according to the report.

The two teenagers were taken to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa. Both were admitted with head and internal injuries and are now in stable condition, according to the highway patrol.
