Blake Shelton Pays Tribute To 6 Teens Killed Near His Oklahoma Ranch

The Oklahoman reported that the car designed to seat four was carrying a 16-year-old driver, three 15-year-olds, and two 17-year-olds. Only the driver and a front-seat passenger were wearing seat belts, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper reported.

Sheriff Gary Dodd told the newspaper, “In 22 years, I’ve seen a lot of stuff…critical incidents, shootings. We do see a lot of death, unfortunately, but to see children that have suffered that type of trauma, it’s raw. It hurts, no matter who you are. To lose six in one scene is an absolute travesty.”

Shelton has reportedly lived on his 1300-acre Tishomingo area ranch, called the Ten Point Ranch, for the past decade. Tishomingo is located less than an hour from Ada, Oklahoma, where the country star grew up.
