The accident occurred around 9 a.m. Wednesday about two miles west and 16 miles south of Turpin.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported a 2004 Honda Foreman 4 ATV being driven by Tony S. Terrell, 79, of Canton Texas, was pulling a small trailer westbound on Beaver County, Road EW26 when he failed to yield at the intersection of County Road NS117.
The Honda then drove in front of a 2011 Toyota Tundra, being driven by Edward P. Fuller III, causing the trailer to be struck by the pickup. The trailer separated from the ATV at impact causing the trailer to travel south coming to rest in the ditch on the west side of County Road NS117.
