FAIRFAX, Okla. – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a car slammed into a deer, which then landed on top of an oncoming pickup truck, crushing the truck's cab and killing a 6-year-old boy.
The patrol says the bizarre accident happened at 7:26 a.m. Tuesday on state Highway 18 north of Fairfax.
According to the OHP report, a southbound car hit the deer and sent it airborne into an oncoming pickup truck driven by 20-year-old Rachel Nicole King of Fairfax. A passenger in King's truck — 6-year-old Jacob Wilson — was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died from a head injury. King was in stable condition with an arm injury, and two other children in the pickup, ages 6 and 9, weren't injured.
The driver of the car that hit the deer also wasn't injured.
