Wreck kills two on state Highway 29

Ada —  

Two Oklahomans were killed in a two-vehicle wreck Saturday night on state Highway 29, one-half mile east of Elmore City.

Ringling resident Lance T. Pemberton was eastbound on SH 29 when nis 1999 Dodge Ram pickup truck went off the right side of the road, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. Pemberton overcorrected to the left and re-entered the highway.

He then crossed the center line and collided head-on with a 1998 Ford Clubwagon van driven by Pauls Valley resident Gayla A. Jackson, who was westbound on SH 29. Pemberton and Jackson were pinned for approximately two hours before they were freed by the Elmore Fire Department.

Pemberton, 20, and Jackson, 45, were both pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Highway Patrol.

Pemberton’s passenger, 20-year-old Hunter Watson of Davis, was taken to Pauls Valley General Hospital for treatment. He was later airlifted to the OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where he was admitted in critical condition with internal and external injuries.

Watson was still in critical condition as of Monday afternoon, according to a hospital spokesman.

Jackson’s passenger, 25-year-old Alicia R. Busey of Elmore City, was taken to Norman Regional Hospital in Norman, where she was treated and released.


ATV wreck

A Sulphur man was injured Saturday when his all-terrain vehicle rolled over on him.

Bryce K. Archer, 19, was traveling up a steep hill on private property three miles south of Sulphur, according to the highway patrol. Archer’s 2012 Yamaha ATV rolled over backwards on top of him.

Archer was taken to Arbuckle Memorial Hospital in Sulphur and was later airlifted to OU Medical Center, where he was admitted in stable condition with internal head and trunk injuries.

Archer’s passenger, 16-year-old Kali N. Vineyard of Davis, was not hurt.
