No one else was injured, according to the report.

The report states that Mangus was northbound in a 2000 Chevrolet pickup

when his truck left the road way and collided with a guardrail.

 He was taken by medical helicopter to St. John Medical Center in Tulsa with internal and external trunk head, arm and leg injuries, according to the report.
