A Coalgate woman was injured Thursday in a single-vehicle wreck in Atoka County.

The wreck occurred on County Road 3730, 13 miles west of Atoka. Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper John Ivey said in a report that 47-year-old Wanda Beasley of Coalgate was driving a 1991 Chevrolet Corsica south when she lost control and ran off the road to the left.

The vehicle then rolled onto its roof, pinning Beasley for 30 minutes until Atoka and Coal County firefighters could free her using hydraulic prying and cutting tools.

Beasley was taken by Air Evac Lifeteam to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City and admitted with internal injuries. Ivey listed her as stable.

Ivey said Beasley was wearing a seat belt and listed the cause of the wreck as unsafe speed.
