A Cleveland High School senior was seriously injured in a highway collision Monday morning.
According to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol report, the accident occurred Monday, Nov. 18 at approximately 8:17 a.m. on SH99, about two miles south of Oilton in Creek County.
Seth Bevill, 18, was driving a 2003 Toyota Corolla, southbound on SH99 when, according to an OHP report, he attempted to pass a school bus without sufficient clearance and was struck head on by a 2016 Freightliner driven by Andrew Tullis, 35, of Oklahoma City.
Bevill was pinned for approximately 15 minutes and was freed by the Drumright Fire Department using the Jaws of Life tool. He was then transported by Creek County EMS to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa and was admitted in serious condition with trunk internal and leg injuries. Tullis was not injured.
A post on the Tiger Quarterback Club Facebook page asks for prayers for Bevill and his family.
“Seth is an Eagle Scout and such a great kid!” the post said.
The post also said that Sonic Drive-In has been accepting donations for the family.
According to the OHP report seatbelts were in use by Bevill. The accident was investigated by Trooper Vince Curtis #854 of the Creek County Detachment of Troop B. He was assisted by Trooper Dakota Bunch #784 of the Creek County Detachment of Troop B, Drumright Fire Department and Creek County EMS.
