A single-vehicle crash in Adair County left a Stilwell man dead March 24.
Daniel Teehee, 41, died at the scene of the crash, which happened at 4:47 p.m. on U.S. Highway 59 and County Road 785, about 2.4 miles north of Stilwell.
An accident report indicates that Teehee was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado pickup northbound on U.S. 59 at high speed when the truck failed to negotiate a curve, leaving the road to the right. Teehee then reportedly overcorrected, lost control and left the roadway to the left and rolling 1 ½ times. Teehee was extricated from the wreckage by the Stilwell Fire Department using the Hurst tool.
The report shows that officers at the scene detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Teehee.
