Two Ada women were injured in a single-vehicle wreck in Pottawatomie County Thursday.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Matthew White said the wreck occurred just south of Coker Road at 12:32 p.m. Merry Monroe, 55, Ada, was driving a 2003 Dodge Caravan south on U.S. 177 when she ran off the road.
“The driver departed the roadway and struck a utility pole,” White said in a report. “(The) vehicle continued and struck a tree (then) overturned one-quarter time, coming to rest on the driver’s side of the vehicle.”
Monroe was taken by REACT EMS to Unity North Hospital in Shawnee, then to OU Medical Center. She was admitted in good condition with a head injury.
A passenger, 70-year-old Ruby Scott of Ada, was taken to Unity North Hospital in Shawnee, then to OU Medical Center.
She was admitted in critical condition with massive injuries.
White said seat belts were in use and listed the cause of the wreck as driver inattention.
A wreck near Madill left a Tishomingo woman with serious injuries. OHP Trooper Rodney Davis said the wreck occurred Thursday four-and-a-half miles north of Madill on U.S. 377 at 2:25 p.m.
Mickie E. Sebree, 61, Tishomingo, was driving a 200 Mazda north and attempted to pass another vehicle. She reportedly swerved off the road to the east to avoid an oncoming vehicle, overcorrected and rolled one time.
Davis said she was pinned in the vehicle for 33 minutes before being freed and taken by Eagle Med to Parkland Hospital in Dallas. She was admitted in serious condition with head injuries. Davis said Sebree was not wearing a seat belt.
