The Highway Patrol said Drew Farrow Jr., 34, of Stillwater, was pronounced dead at the scene from head and trunk injuries. His body was transported by Palmer-Marler Funeral home for the Medical Examiner.

A passenger, 29-year-old Amber J. Farrow, of Glenco, was transported by Life Net ambulance to Stillwater Medical Center, where she was treated and released.
