Nowata County, Oklahoma (December 7, 2017): Local Nowata resident, 34-year-old Lorie J. Sellers, was killed in a motorcycle crash on U.S. 60 Sunday afternoon, December 3, 2017. According to reports, the accident occurred around 4:30 in the afternoon when Sellers’ westbound motorcycle struck the right side of a southbound pickup truck that was stopped at a stop sign. The motorcycle made contact with the driver’s side bumper of the pickup, then skidded into a guardrail.
Sellers was ejected from the motorcycle and thrown nearly 60 feet. She was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision and died from the severity of the injuries she sustained. The driver of the pickup truck, 67-year-old David L. McKee, also of Nowata, was wearing a seatbelt and did not suffer any injuries in the crash. While the investigation into the collision remains ongoing, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol believes that inattention led to the collision.
