Inattention cause of area accident

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — One driver not paying attention is what authorities believe caused one vehicle to crash into the back of another earlier this week near Wynnewood.

Hurt in the two-vehicle accident was 32-year-old Kristopher Tyler of Paoli.

Tyler was alone while driving a 2007 Ford that ran into the back of a tractor-truck Monday night.

State troopers listed “inattention” as the reason Tyler drove his vehicle into the back of the truck as it stopped at a construction site stop sign on state Highway 17A.

The tractor-truck was driven by Jackie Kopp, 58, of Snyder.

The vehicle was stopped a site about 2 miles west of Wynnewood when at a listed time of 6:49 a.m. Monday, Aug. 5 it was struck in the rear by Tyler’s vehicle.

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol report shows both individuals were wearing seatbelts when the accident occurred.

Tyler was initially taken by a Pauls Valley E.M.S. ambulance to Pauls Valley General Hospital.

He was later transferred to a hospital in Norman, where he was admitted in stable condition with arm injuries.

Kopp was not injured, according to the OHP report.

The crash was investigated by OHP Trooper Daniel Arms of the Garvin/Murray County Detachment.

Assisting at the scene were Wynnewood firefighters and police, in addition to Garvin County deputies.
