An Enid man, Jacob Burrell, was killed in a fiery accident on I-35 Friday morning. The accident was around 8:30 Friday morning, at mile marker 151 Southbound I-35.
According to some eyewitness reports, the truck (falsely reported as a car in one instance), which had a trailer attached to it, began weaving erratically from lane to lane before it left the road, went airborne and eventually landed in a ditch when it exploded into flames. Burrell was pronounced dead on the scene. Police believe that Burrell fell asleep behind the wheel before the accident happened.
