ENID, OK – Two motorists were injured in a multi-vehicle collision involving a semi-truck on West Owen Garriott Road in Enid on Friday afternoon, reports Enid News & Eagle.
The collision occurred at 1500 W. Garriot Rd near McAlister’s Deli around 12:25 p.m.
According to Enid police, 23-year-old Sabrina Briggs was attempting to turn from the private drive at McAlister’s Deli and Wendy’s into the westbound lanes of Garriot in a 2014 Hyundai Elantra but failed to yield to an eastbound 2006 Chevrolet HHR.
