Burtrum was not injured in the crash that occurred at the intersection of Hobart Road and Blaine Road around 10:00 Monday night. According to the report, Burtrum was southbound approaching a T intersection when he looked over his shoulder to speak to Kirkhart.

The cause of the crash, which remains under investigation, is listed as “Inattention, Distracted by passenger.”

KO)--United Way of Enid and Northwest Oklahoma will kick off its annual fundraising campaign with a coordinators' luncheon, noon to 1:00 p.m. Wednesday in the Nick Benson Ballroom at Stride Bank Center. RSVP deadline for the luncheon is Monday. Dan Schiedel, executive director of United Way of Enid & Northwest Oklahoma, the event is open to employers, business owners and community leaders who will coordinate efforts in the “United Together” annual campaign. Schiedel said this year's public campaign kickoff event will be combined with the annual United Way golf tournament, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Schiedel said the June 24 luncheon is not a fundraiser, but an organizational event and an opportunity to celebrate the community's charitable giving. United Way of Enid & Northwest Oklahoma has set a goal of raising $800,000 to support its 15 partner agencies through 2021, up from $725,000 last year. Employers will be able to pick up their campaign packets at the luncheon. To RSVP for the luncheon, email kim@unitedwayenid.org or call (580) 237-0821 by close of business on Monday.
