Double Fatality Crash near Fitzhugh

Fittshugh — Two people died and an infant was injured in a three-vehicle collision Tuesday in the Fitzhugh area at 5:32 p.m. The crash occurred on state Highway 1 just south of County Road 1620. Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Daniel Arms said 22-year-old Lauren Hatton of Ada and 47-year-old Boyd Bolin of Collinsville died from injuries received in the crash. Trooper Arms said Hatton, driving south in a 2009 Ford Fusion, for an unknown reason, crossed the center line and crashed into the side of a utility trailer being pulled by a northbound pickup. The Fusion then collided head-on with a northbound 2005 Dodge pickup driven by Bolin. Bolin was pronounced dead at the scene from massive injuries. Hatton was pinned for approximately 20 minutes while firefighters from Ada, Roff and Fitzhugh used hydraulic prying tools to remove her from the wreckage. Hatton and a passenger, 2-month-old Tyton Hatton of Ada, were taken to waiting Valley View EMS ambulances to be treated while medical helicopters were in enroute. Tyton Hatton was taken by MediFlight to OU Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City and admitted with trunk internal injuries. A spokesperson with the hospital said Wednesday Tyton Hatton was in good condition. Lauren Hatton was taken by Air Evac to Purcell Hospital where she was pronounced dead from massive injuries, Trooper Arms said in a report. The driver and passenger of the pickup pulling the utility trailer, 28-year-old Jared Newby of Ada and 48-year-old Steven Skokos of Ada, were not injured. Trooper Arms said Tyton Hatton was secured in a carseat, but only Newby and Skokos were wearing seat belts. Arms listed the cause of the crash as left of center in a marked zone. Pontotoc County sheriff’s deputies and Chickasaw Lighthorse police also responded.
