Wily coyote outfoxes 2 Claremore teens

CLAREMORE — A pair of Claremore teens attempt to run over a coyote backfired Sunday, and their efforts ended with a trip to a Tulsa hospital.

According to the report of OHP Trooper Andy Floyd, 17-year-old Paden Begley was driving a 1989 Dodge Pickup on Old South Highway 88, when he saw a coyote running in the field of a nearby sod farm.
Begley then turned his vehicle into the field in an attempt to “run over the coyote,” when the coyote “took evasive action,” according to the report, causing the driver to turn the vehicle sharply (to attempt to follow the coyote), causing the vehicle to roll one full time.
After the vehicle came to a rest, Begley’s female passenger, 17-year-old Taylor Shelton, crawled to the roadway and was able to attract the attention of a passing motorist to report the collision at 11:28 p.m.
Begley and Shelton were subsequently transported to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, where he was admitted in stable condition with head, trunk, internal, arm and leg injuries, and she was admitted in stable condition with head and internal injuries.
Neither of the teens were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident, according to the report.
Trooper Andy Floyd is with Troop B, Rogers County detachment of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
