Huey Mangus, 79, was killed Wednesday when the 2000 Chevy pickup he was driving went off the road to the left. Mangus was ejected approximately five feet when the pickup hit a guardrail. He was driving northbound on US Route 271 seven miles north of Talihina.
The air bag did not deploy and Mangus was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident. He was air-lifted in critical condition to St. John's Hospital in Tulsa. He sustained trunk internal & ex- ternal, arm, head and leg injuries.
Mangus was later declared dead by the medical examiner's office.
