Authorities believe alcohol was involved in a two-vehicle wreck near Homer Sunday evening.

Two pickups collided head-on three miles north of State Highway 1 at 8:42 p.m. on County Road 3590.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Alan Fortner said Jimmy Coody, 30, Ada, was driving a 1998 Chevrolet north on CR 3590 when he ran off the road to the left, overcorrected, drove back onto the road and hit a 1995 Ford F350 driven south by Caryn Frazier, 45, Ada.

“(Coody) was pinned for approximately 20 minutes before being extricated by Ada (firefighters),” Fortner said.

He was taken by Valley View EMS to Valley View Regional Hospital, then taken to Presbyterian Hospital in Oklahoma City.

He was admitted in serious condition with trunk internal injuries.

Frazier was treated and released for head, arm and trunk internal injuries.

Based on his investigative opinion, Fortner said Coody was intoxicated from drinking alcohol when the crash occurred.

Frazier was pulling a horse trailer with one horse inside. It was out walking around after the wreck and emergency officials said it appeared to have no injuries.

Firefighters from Homer-Lovelady and  Pontotoc County sheriff’s deputies also responded.
