CASHION, Oklahoma -

The father of a Cashion teenager who died Tuesday in a two-vehicle crash in rural Kingfisher County is speaking out to News 9. 

Chris Curran’s 15-year-old son, Chris Curran Jr., was a backseat passenger of a Jeep Liberty that was heading north on County Road NS 2960. 

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said the Jeep Liberty was t-boned by a pickup, heading east on County Road EW0850.

Chris Curran Jr. was ejected from the vehicle.

Doctors at OU Medical Center pronounced him dead a short time later. 

Curran’s father said the 50 mph speed limit on the dirt country roads is too high for the conditions. 

He said there should be stop or yield signs visible at those intersections as well, and that the county lets the grass grow too high at those intersections as well.

“I don’t want to see anybody else lose their life over something stupid like this. It ain’t worth it,” he said. 

A memorial fund in Chris Curran Jr.’s name has been established at the Community State Bank in Cashion. 

Troopers said the pickup driver that hit the Jeep Liberty has not been charged but the investigation is continuing.
