Deadly Accident in Hardesty

A 19-year-old man from Hardesty is dead after his pickup ran off a Rural Texas County Road.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says Justin Shelton was driving his pickup about 6 miles south of Hardesty when the accident happened Wednesday afternoon.

The pickup came to rest on its top in a dry creekbed.
