MCCURTAIN COUNTY, Okla. – A man who was driving under the influence died after he crashed his vehicle.

The incident occurred Friday near Eagletown, Oklahoma, around 3:15 p.m.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 85-year-old Jack Willingham was driving southbound on Panki Bok Road when he drove off the right side of the road, striking several trees and then overturning 1/4 times, coming to a rest on the driver side door.

He was pronounced dead at the scene with “head, trunk-internal, trunk-external, arm and leg injuries.”
