Collin Phillippi, 29 of Checotah died in Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa of head, trunk, external, internal and leg injuries after he was pinned when a 2003 Dodge pickup driven by Robert Johnston, 32, of Eufaula, wrecked on Texanna Road in McIntosh County, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Johnston was not injured, nor was Christopher Hellweg, 28, of Checotah, who also was a passenger. None of the three men were wearing seatbelts, according to the patrol.

The cause of the wreck is still under investigation.

UPDATE: Johnston was found deceased over the weekend by family members, according to a law enforcement source. Authorities are working to determine an official cause of death.
