NORMAN — The man who died in a single-vehicle fatality collision late Monday night near Noble was 32-year-old David L. Donovan, according to Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials.

According to an OHP collision report, Donovan, of Noble, was approaching 108th and Maguire Road at about 11:30 p.m. in his SUV when his vehicle left the roadway and struck a culvert, which caused the vehicle to go airborne and eject Donovan.

The vehicle then caught fire. Donovan was pronounced dead at the scene by Noble paramedic Steven Paul.

According to Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Joy Hampton, CCSO MSgt. Kyle Turner and Deputy Kassandra Ronk were the first to arrive on the scene.

“On scene, they discovered an SUV fully engulfed in flames and a small grass fire,” she said. “Debris at the site of the wreck indicates it was most likely a single-car wreck.”

While Turner and Ronk blocked the roadway, they discovered Donovan lying about 25 feet from the vehicle. Turner rendered aid as they waited for the ambulance, but the man was unconscious and unresponsive.

Noble emergency services arrived about 20 minutes after the collision occurred.

Moore man sentenced to three years for firearm charge

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Timothy D. DeGiusti sentenced 46-year-old Jeremy Shawn Parke to three years in prison for shooting a rifle in a Moore residential neighborhood.

According to Oklahoma federal court records, Parke was charged with possessing a firearm as a prohibited person in 2018, after he fired his AR-style rifle multiple times in his backyard.

One of the bullets Parke shot was found in an infant boy’s crib in one of his neighbor’s homes.

Scott E. Williams, assistant U.S. attorney of the Western District of Oklahoma, said Parke was charged in federal court in accordance with federal law because he was prohibited from possessing a firearm, due to being subjected to a protective order in Cleveland County District Court.

Parke pleaded guilty to the firearm charge in July.

The case was investigated by Moore police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon Hale and Jacquelyn Hutzell prosecuted the case.

Oklahoma court records show Parke pleaded no contest in 2012 to domestic assault and battery. He received a five-year deferred sentence in that case.
