Curtis Sharbutt, 53, of Oktaha was killed last night in a single-vehicle wreck, and his passenger, Amanda McCracken, 41, was seriously injured, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
Sharbutt was driving a 2005 Ford Escapr northbound on US 69 around 8:45 p.m. just south of Checotah, when the car departed the highway to the right and rolled four times, coming to rest on its roof. Sharbutt was ejected 30 feet.
Sharbutt was pronounced dead at the scene. McCracken was flown to a Tulsa hospital, where she was admitted with head and arm injuries.
Sharbutt was not wearing a seatbelt, the patrol reported. McCracken was.
