An eastern Oklahoma assistant police chief who was ejected from his pickup in a crash earlier this month has died from his injuries.
The Checotah Police Department says 35-year-old Justin Durrett died Monday at a Tulsa hospital after suffering multiple neck injuries in the Feb. 11 wreck in Haskell County.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said in a preliminary report that Durrett lost control of the pickup for an unknown reason, sending the vehicle off the road. Troopers say Durrett was then ejected as the vehicle rolled over and became trapped underneath the truck until a deputy who pulled over near the crash site discovered him.
The GoFundMe page has more than $14,000 of its $20,000 goal, as of Tuesday (Feb. 20).
