Two injured in accident involving three vehicles

At least two persons were reportedly hurt in an accident that occurred in Ada involving three vehicles the afternoon of March 27.

According to Patrol Officer Brad Rhoads’ report, a driver traveling eastbound allegedly ran a red light, causing them to strike a southbound vehicle. The originally eastbound driver then struck another vehicle. Witnesses said that north and southbound traffic had a green light while eastbound traffic had a red light when the accident happened. The first two drivers were brought to the hospital for injuries they sustained while the third reportedly did not sustain any injuries.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation will examine the blood drawn from the alleged offending driver, as Rhoads surmised that they were under the influence of intoxicants.

Unfortunately, reckless drivers, including those driving under the influence, all too often cause innocent people serious harm in car accidents.

Oklahoma wreck critically injures man

A man was critically injured after his truck slammed into a tree on West Oklahoma the night of Wednesday, March 6.

Capt. Jack Morris of the Enid Police Department said the accident happened on West Oklahoma at the 1500 block around 8 p.m., when a westbound vehicle struck an unoccupied parked car before it slammed into a tree. Enid Fire Department and Life EMS personnel responded to the crash scene to rescue 41-year-old Montra Smith, who suffered serious head injuries from the crash and had no pulse when responders arrived. A traffic officer also noted the smell of alcohol coming from Smith, but no charges were made immediately after the accident.

Smith is currently confined in a hospital for the critical injuries sustained in the crash.

Fortunately, no one else was injured in this accident; however, reckless drivers and those driving under the influence of alcohol all too often cause serious harm to unsuspecting people.
