4 injured in separate wrecks

Ada — Three people were injured in a rollover accident early Friday morning in Oklahoma County.

McComb resident Jesse McCullough was eastbound in the outside lane of Interstate 40 when his 2002 Oldsmobile went off the right side, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. McCullough overcorrected, causing the car to slide and strike a culvert.

The car rolled about five and a half times, ejecting McCullough and his two passengers.

McCullough, 25, was taken to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where he was listed in critical condition with head, neck and spinal injuries. One of his passengers, 23-year-old Justin Stewart of McComb, was taken to OU Medical Center and listed in stable condition with internal trunk injuries.

The second passenger, 39-year-old Charles Hardimon of Roff, was taken to OU Medical Center and listed in good condition with possible internal trunk injuries.

The Oldsmobile was equipped with seat belts, but they were not in use, according to the OHP.

In a separate accident, a Coalgate man was inured in a one-vehicle wreck Thursday night west of Stuart.

Gary Weeden was westbound on U.S. Highway 270 and failed to negotiate a curve, according to the OHP. His 2006 Mack truck ran off the north side of the highway and overturned.

Weeden, 51, was flown from the scene to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, where he was listed in stable condition with internal injuries.

The truck was equipped with seat belts, which were in use when the accident occurred.
