STROUD, Okla. (AP) — Authorities say a high school golf star was killed in a single-car accident hours after competing in the All-State golf tournament in Broken Arrow.
Bethel's Kyle Lewis was alone in his car, which left the road and struck a bridge embankment on the Turner Turnpike near Stroud on Monday. Authorities say it's unknown why his car left the road.
A moment of silence will be observed at the remaining All-State events this week.
Lewis, a graduating senior, had signed a letter of intent to play golf at Oklahoma and had planned to move to Norman next month. Oklahoma golf coach Ryan Hybl says the team is mourning Lewis' death. He says Lewis "was going to be a great ambassador for our university."
