TISHOMINGO—Five people were injured in a two car wreck east of Tishomingo Saturday evening. Two others were not injured.

Fredrick E. Wells, 48, Tishomingo, Ronald W. Boyd, 39, Allen, Joyce A. Wells, 49, Tishomingo, Teresa Boyd, 40, Allen, and Virginia Cox, 87, all suffered injuries when the two vehicles collided, a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.

Paul Boyd, 11, and Jacob Boyd, 7, both from Allen, were not injured. Ronald Boyd was the only patient admitted to the hospital.

Fredrick Wells was driving a 1999 Ford Winstar minivan west on State Highway 78. Cox was driving a 2004 Chevy Trail Blazer east on SH 78, OHP Trooper Miles Anderson said in the report.

Cox turned in front of Fredrick Wells’ vehicle when she attempted to turn onto a county road.

Anderson said the roads were dry and seat belts were in use by all of the persons involved in the wreck. The report said both drivers were normal and the cause of the collision was failure to yield.

All the patients were taken to Johnston Memorial Hospital in Tishomingo, where they were treated and released with the exception of Ronald Boyd, who was admitted the hospital.
