KINGSTON - Several people were injured in an early Friday afternoon crash two miles west of Kingston at the intersection of state highways 70F and 32.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Shane K. Cooley, 25, Arlington, Va., was southbound in a 1999 GMC at a stop sign when he failed to yield and was struck by a westbound Chevrolet pickup driven by Gregory D. Allenbaugh, 22, Whitewright, Texas.
Cooley's vehicle rolled several times before coming to rest in a pasture, and Allenbaugh's truck flipped one-half time and ended up in a ditch. Cooley and one passenger were pinned before being freed by Madill firefighters.
The patrol said that Cooley is listed in serious condition at an Oklahoma City hospital with arm and internal-trunk injuries. A passenger, Michaela L. Fetters, 11, Albuquerque, N.M., was flown to OU Medical Center, Oklahoma City, and is in serious condition with head injuries.
Two other passengers, Kennedy Cooley, 7, Piedmont, and Rebecca Cummins, 6, Oklahoma City, were treated and released. Another passenger, Marissa Fetters, 8, Albuquerque, was not injured.
Allenbaugh also was treated and released. All occupants except Mr. Cooley wore seat belts, according to Trooper Rodney Davis' report. Bryan County Troopers Scott Hampton and Steve Nabors assisted.
