Teens in Hospital After Trying to Run Over Coyote with Truck
By Chad Love
Two Oklahoma teenagers tried to run over a coyote with their truck and ended up rolling it instead, according to a police report.
From this story in the Tulsa World:
Medics transported two Claremore teenagers to a Tulsa hospital after they reportedly tried to run over a coyote. According to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol report, Paden Begley, 17, was driving a 1989 dodge truck north on Sunday on old Oklahoma 88 when he saw a coyote running through a sod farm field. Begley then reportedly turned the truck into the field to try to run over the coyote, according to the OHP. The report states that the "coyote took evasive action," and Begley turned the truck sharply to follow the coyote, causing the truck to roll.
According to the story, the teens were not wearing seat belts and were taken to a local hospital where they were listed in stable condition. The coyote is still at large...
