Blaine County, Oklahoma (December 13, 2017): A two-vehicle crash on U.S. 270 Monday evening, December 11, 2017, has left several victims with injuries ranging from minor to critical, according to reports. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) dispatched to the accident scene at the intersection of U.S. 270 and Oklahoma 58, about nine miles west of Watonga, around 7:00 p.m., closing that section of the highway for nearly nine hours overnight.
The OHP report states that a southbound 2006 Firefighter car on Oklahoma 58 failed to yield to a westbound 2013 Kentworth trailer on U.S. 270, causing the trailer to roll west down the highway before coming to a stop. The driver of the Firefighter, Hubert Alan Clark, his passenger, Gregory Warrick, and the driver of the Kentworth, Daryl Ray Shields, were all transported to Mercy Hospital in Watonga by Emergency Medical Services. Clark was admitted to the hospital in stable condition and has reportedly suffered injuries to his legs and internal organs. Warrick is reported to have sustained a head injury in the crash and was transferred to Mercy Hospital in Oklahoma City where he is in critical condition. Shields injuries have not been disclosed and his condition has been reported as “treated and released.”
