ELMWOOD, Okla. — A Woodward man was killed Tuesday afternoon in a one-vehicle accident in Beaver County.

Jose Angel Martinez, 21, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol report. Another man, Dale Leo Miller II, 28, of Woodward, is listed in poor condition at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, Kan., according to the report. Miller suffered head, arm, leg and trunk injuries.

The accident happened at 2:45 p.m. Tuesday on U.S. 270 about five miles east of Elmwood.
