Two die in Oklahoma wrecks, including boy on ATV
From Staff Reports
Two people died in state wrecks Saturday afternoon, including an 8-year-old boy riding on an all-terrain vehicle, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
Michael Lane McCloud, 8, Richardson, Texas.
Michael died when the all-terrain vehicle on which he was riding rolled on top of him in southern McClain County north of Lindsey, the patrol said.
About 4:45 p.m., Kinsey McCloud, 12, of Richardson, Texas, was driving the ATV in a pasture in the 15000 block of Meridian Avenue when she made a sharp left turn, the patrol said. The ATV rolled onto its side and landed on top of Michael, who died at the scene.
Kinsey and another passenger, Sue Harrison, 59, of Lindsey, were not hurt, the patrol said.
Troopers did not say if anyone was wearing a helmet.
In its preliminary accident report, the patrol cited excessive speed as the cause of the wreck.
This has been a sad weekend for the Powell family. Lane was the grandson of my Soul mate's cousin. Please remember this family in your prayers as they are suffering tremendously...
