  • Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper killed another critically injured

    Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Nicholas Dees was killed while working a truck jacknife accident near Shawnee Saturday night. Trooper Kieth Burch, another trooper at the scene was critically injured.

    "We are deeply saddened by the loss of Trooper Dees and are praying for Trooper Burch's full recovery," OHP Chief Rick Adams said in a statement.

    The two troopers were at the scene when a second vehicle hit the semitrailer, an OHP spokesperson said. After hitting the semitrailer, the vehicle hit both troopers.

    The driver who struck the troopers was transported to an Oklahoma City-area hospital. He is in stable condition, according to officials.

    The semitrailer driver sustained minor injuries from the initial accident.

    OHP is investigating the secondary crash involving Dees and Burch. No charges have been filed and no arrests have been made, according to officials.

    Both east- and west-bound lanes of I-40 at mile marker 195 in Seminole County have been reopened. They were closed for 14 hours.

    Dees was the son of a retired trooper.

    Dees ................... Burch

    God bless Trooper Dees, his family, Trooper Burch, and his family. Hopefully, the truck driver gets transferred to jail soon.
    Pete Malloy, "The only thing black and white about this job is the car."
