DAVIS — A Sulphur man remains in fair condition in an Oklahoma City hospital after his vehicle ran off the highway and struck a bridge, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
Troopers said 27-year-old Wesley A. Evans was driving a 2005 Dodge four-door south on Interstate 35 at mile marker 51 in Murray County at about 1:15 a.m. today when his vehicle ran off the left side of the highway, struck a bridge, then continued across the four-lane freeway and overturned.
Evans was ejected about 30 feet from where the vehicle came to rest. He was treated and then transported by Murray County Emergency Medical Services to a Sulphur business parking lot, then airlifted to the University of Oklahoma Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where he was admitted in fair condition with trunk and leg injuries, the patrol said.
Investigating OHP trooper Doug Brinson of the Murray County detachment of Troop F, Ardmore, said Evans was not wearing a seat belt. Brinson reported the cause of the accident was unsafe speed.
OHP was assisted by Murray County Sheriff’s deputies, and Davis police officers and firefighters.
