Two Winfield men killed in accident in Kay County, Okla.

WINFIELD, Kansas — Two Winfield men were killed early Friday morning in a wreck across the state line in Oklahoma.

Troopers say 29-year-old Danny Stowell was driving near Newkirk at a high rate of speed when he lost control.

The car rolled several times throwing Stowell and his passenger, 21-year-old Errol Halverstadt.

Neither were wearing a seat belt.

Officials say speed was a factor, and they could smell alcohol at the scene. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
