A Stonewall man was injured in a weekend crash and authorities allege alcohol was involved.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Keith Teel said the wreck occurred on County Road 3645 eight miles southeast of Ada at 11:42 p.m. Friday.

Shane El Dean Stinnett, 34, was driving south in a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis when he — on at a curve in the road — ran off the road to the left and hit an electric pole and a large rock, Teel said.

Stinnett was taken by Valley View EMS to Valley View Regional Hospital and admitted with trunk internal injuries.

He is listed as stable.

Teel said Stinnett was wearing a seat belt and based on his investigative opinion, listed the cause of the wreck as driving under the influence of alcohol.
