Indianhoma, OK – Man mowing lawn hit, killed by car in SW Oklahoma
INDIAHOMA, Okla. (AP) The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a 61-year-old southwest Oklahoma man was killed while mowing his lawn on a riding mower when he was hit by a suspected drunken driver.
The OHP accident report says Kenneth Kowena died in the crash about 7:25 p.m. Thursday.
It says Kowena was on a riding lawnmower in his yard when the car driven by 26-year-old old Rickey Hoover Jr. went off the roadway and crashed into the mower.
Online jail records show Hoover is being held in the Comanche County jail for first-degree manslaughter and driving under the influence. Records did not show whether he has an attorney.
