Canadian County, Oklahoma (January 2, 2018): A local Oklahoma man, 55-year-old Calumet resident Clay Comer, was tragically killed in a motor vehicle crash with a semi-truck at an El Reno intersection Thursday evening, December 28, 2017. The crash is still being investigated, but the Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) has prepared an official accident report based on the results of the initial investigation.
The accident occurred just after 5:00 pm at the intersection of State Highway 66 and U.S. Route 270, a four-way stop in El Reno. Comer reportedly came to a complete stop at the sign before entering the intersection to continue west on State Highway 66. As Comer began to drive his vehicle through the intersection, he was struck by a semi-truck traveling south on U.S. 270 that failed to yield at the intersection. Comer died at the scene. It is not clear whether the driver of the semi-truck, 55-year-old Jerry Barnett, of Wagoner, Oklahoma, suffered any injuries in the crash. Reports do not mention the presence of any other occupants in either vehicle.
