ALVA, Okla. – An 18-year-old was killed in a two-vehicle crash last week in Woods County, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
It happened May 31, just after 12:45 p.m., on US 281 and Greer Road, near Alva.
According to a trooper’s report, Colton Carter, 18, was driving eastbound on Greer Road when he “failed to stop at the stop sign,” and hit an SUV that was southbound on the highway, pulling a 40-foot John Deere header.
Carter was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the SUV and her two passengers, a 5-year-old girl and 9-year-old girl, were not injured.
Officials say the cause of the crash was due to “exceeding the legal speed limit and failure to stop at a sign.”
