The 53-year-old journalist died after his vehicle collided with a dump truck near Cushing in Oklahoma. According to the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's Office, Kelly suffered head injured and internal bleeding.

His family was reported as saying that Kelly, the general manager of KUSH Radio in Cushing and an evening anchor for KWEM-TV 31, was driving on the two-lane State Highway 33 about 2 miles west of Cushing on his way to report live on grassfires when the crash occurred.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said that an eastbound dump truck attempted to pass him when Kelly began to make a left turn and the dump truck struck Kelly's Chevrolet in the driver's door, the police report says.
