MUSE—Whitesboro’s boys basketball coach died in a single-car wreck Saturday morning.
Ronald Wayne Tucker Jr., 30, died at the scene at about 11:30 a.m., according to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol release.
Tucker was driving a 2004 Lincoln Aviator east of Muse on Oklahoma 63 in LeFlore County when he crossed the center line into oncoming traffic, swerved and overcorrected, troopers said.
The car rolled two and a half times, coming to rest on its roof. Tucker, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected 6 feet, the release states.
Tucker just completed his first year as coach at Whitesboro.
