Pawhuska Car Accident Sends Five To Hospital
Four people were injured with two being lifeflighted to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa after a car versus truck collision in Pawhuska Wednesday morning.
According to the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety, it happened around 10 a.m. on SH11 on county road 2518 approximately 1.7 miles south of Pawhuska.
The accident happened when a tractor truck driven by a 50-year-old man, Steven Love, attempted to pass a 2007 Chrysler driven by a 16-year-old girl.
Both vehicles were traveling south on SH11 when the Chrysler was attempting to make a left turn and the truck tried to pass. That’s when the truck ran into the Chrysler pinning the driver for roughly 45 minutes when both vehicles came to rest in a ditch. The driver was freed after fire personnel had to cut her out.
Love was uninjured, but the 16-year-old had to be airlifted to Tulsa and was admitted in stable condition with head, trunk internal and trunk external injuries.
Three other passengers in the Chrysler also had to be treated for injuries. 38-year-old Chris McCullough was taken to St. Francis by EMS and was admitted with head, trunk internal and trunk external injuries while a 7-year-old male and an 11-year-old female were also taken to the hospital and later released with head, trunk internal and trunk external injuries.
A 23-month-old boy was also lifeflighted to St. Francis and admitted in stable condition with a head injury.
