OKAY, OK (WAGONER COUNTY) – A man from Broken Arrow died Saturday after a two-vehicle collision in Wagoner County that possibly involved excessive speeds and a driver under the influence, reports Tulsa World.

In the aftermath, Smith was pinned in the wreckage before emergency officials managed to extract him. He was pronounced dead at the hospital with injuries sustained during the crash that included wounds to the head and torso.

A passenger inside the Dodge was also taken to the hospital and later released.

The driver of the Camaro was taken to the hospital for the treatment of leg and torso wounds. They were reportedly under the influence at the time of the accident but are not recorded as having been charged with a crime.
