Ramone Jackson, 21, of Checotah was killed in a single-vehicle wreck east of Eufaula yesterday, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Jackson was driving his 2013 Chrysler 300 westbound on County Road East West 4240 “at a high rate of speed” around 2 a.m., the patrol reported, when he failed to negotiate a curve and lost control, running off the left side of the road, striking a pipe fence.

The patrol is unsure if Jackson was wearing a seatbelt, or whether the car’s airbags deployed. It is still investigating the condition of Jackson at the time of the wreck and the specific cause of the wreck.
