Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials said the accident happened at 2:45 Thursday afternoon on U.S. 64 near the intersection with State Highway 8 about 2 miles north of Cherokee. According to the report, Crowl was westbound on U.S. 64 when he ran the stop sign at Highway 8 while attempting to pass a 2018 Ram 3500 pickup driven by 29 year-old Brock Thomas White of Earlville, Iowa. Due to oncoming traffic, Crowl swerved back into the westbound lane and hit the passenger side of a stock trailer White was pulling. White was not injured, but a horse in the trailer was taken to a local veterinary clinic with leg injuries.
