Comanche, OK — Back in April, there was a serious accident outside of Comanche that left one motorcyclist dead and as many as 9 others injured. Police said that Monty Howell, 53, was killed after his group of motorcyclists were hit by a GMC Denali suburban along U.S. 81 on Saturday, April 11, 2015.
Howell was part of a group of 13 motorcyclists that was headed south along U.S. 81 that afternoon.
Headed in the opposite direction was Fred Cox, 43, who was driving the GMC Denali.
