Gerald Samuel Hale Shaw, 17, of Fort Gibson, died this afternoon in a single-vehicle collision at the Fort Gibson dam, according to emergency workers.

Details are coming in slowly. Initial reports are that his vehicle hit a wall at the dam.

The wreck happened early this afternoon.

We will update as more information becomes available.

Friends and family are already leaving condolences on his Facebook page.

UPDATE: The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is reporting Shaw’s age as 16, not 17. The wreck occurred at 2:48 p.m.. Shaw was pinned in the vehicle and was not wearing a seatbelt. The highway patrol is still investigating the cause of the wreck.

The patrol is also reporting his hometown as Muskogee, not Fort Gibson.

Shaw was driving a black Ford F-150 eastbound on Oklahoma 251A across the dam when his truck departed the road to the left and ran into a rock wall, the patrol reports.
