Woman who witnessed fatal offroad crash shares her story

BRYAN COUNTY, Okla. (KXII) - A group of friends wanted to have fun riding ATVs at Mud Disruption in Bryan County over the weekend, but their experience took a turn for the worse early Sunday morning.

One woman, who wished to remain anonymous, says she was one of the thousands of people who were at Mud Disruption, an event at the NTR Offroad Park in Bennington over the weekend.

Another person there was Randell Morgan, 57, of Tennessee.

"You do truck tugs, trucks drive through pits, you pretty much just play in the mud and ride trails," said the woman.

Early Sunday morning, she says her group, along with Morgan, went down to one of the larger mud pits at the park.

She says Morgan planned to take his jacked-up pickup through it.

"We just pulled up to watch Randell go through the pit and all of a sudden, something just went wrong," she said.

She was riding an ATV and says she couldn't get out of the way in time.

"He headed straight for us, and we couldn't get in reverse, couldn't do nothing, and he smacked straight head on to us," she said.

Then she looked up and saw Morgan in his truck, soaring over her.

"After he flipped and landed on top of his roof, we immediately jumped out of the razor and realized Randell was not alive," she said.

She has a broken foot from the crash.

Troopers say Morgan's passenger was also hurt but is expected to be okay.

After hearing the crash happen, the woman believes the throttle on Randell's truck was stuck.

"He didn't mean to do this and he tried everything to not hit us," she said.
