School bus, police officer, dog and 7 cars involved in 3 wrecks

Ada — Three wrecks in the rain kept emergency crews busy Thursday morning.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Brian Bagwell worked all three wrecks, only one of which involved injuries. The injury wreck occurred on state Highway 3W just north of SH 19.

Bagwell said Kevin Hickman, 17, of Stratford, was driving a Chevrolet pickup east on SH 3W when he accelerated to change lanes and hydroplaned in rainy conditions. Hickman lost control of the pickup, which slid sideways into westbound lanes and into Chickasaw Nation Lighthorse Police Officer Michael Holloway’s path. Holloway’s patrol vehicle, a Ford Expedition, collided with the pickup, front to side.

Holloway was taken by Mercy EMS to Chickasaw Nation Medical Center as a precaution. Aldo, Holloway’s K-9 partner, was taken to a local veterinarian, also as a precaution. Neither Holloway nor Aldo were injured, a Chickasaw Nation spokesman said Thursday.

Hickman and two passengers, Joseb Youngwolf, 17, and Cody Schnitker, 17, were taken by Mercy EMS to a local hospital and treated and released for various minor injuries. Hickman was issued a citation for operating a vehicle at speed greater than reasonable and proper, Bagwell said.

Bagwell was working two wrecks in Pickett when the injury wreck was called in. The first wreck occurred when the driver of a Vanoss school bus was exiting a parking lot and pulled into the path of a vehicle traveling on SH 19. The vehicle hit the bus in the passenger side front end, Bagwell said.

Bagwell said there were students on the bus, but none were injured. The driver of the other vehicle involved was not injured. Just after the bus/car collision, which was blocking the roadway, two vehicles had stopped when a third vehicle slammed into the second car, driving it into the first vehicle. No one was injured in that wreck either, Bagwell said.
