KHP Looking for Semi Driver in Turpin Father/Son Death

KSCB News - October 29, 2019 12:24 pm

( The Kansas Highway Patrol reported a 2007 Kenworth truck was westbound on Grant County Road 10 three miles north of U.S. 160.

The driver failed to yield right of way to a southbound 2012 Chevy Silverado driven by Kevin Jay Coyle, 57, Turpin, Oklahoma, at the uncontrolled intersection. The Kenworth entered the intersection directly into the path of the Silverado.

Coyle and a passenger Gerald Lee Coyle, 81, Turpin, Oklahoma, were pronounced dead at the scene.

While a witness to the crash was working to assist the victims, the driver of the Kenworth truck drove away in the witness’s pickup, according to KHP Trooper Michael Racy.

Authorities have located the stolen pickup in a Haskell County field. They have not found the driver, who is facing criminal charges, according to Racy. Anyone who witnessed the crash or who might have information is asked to call Technical Trooper Michael Racy at 620-276-3201.
