James Overall, 63, of Muskogee was killed yesterday afternoon in a single-car wreck a mile south and west of Taft, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Overall was driving a 2004 Jeep Cherokee Laredo on State Highway 16 around 1 p.m. when it departed the roadway to the right for an unknown reason, the patrol reported, continuing that he over-corrected, departed the roadway to the left, and the vehicle overturned three times, ejecting him.

He was not wearing a seatbelt, and the Jeep’s airbags did not deploy. The patrol is investigating Overall’s condition at the time and the cause of the wreck.
