Grant County, Oklahoma (November 30, 2017): 20-year-old Alejandro Jesus Allende of Great Bend, Kansas was injured in a single-vehicle rollover accident last Wednesday evening, November 21, 2017. According to the description of the crash provided by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Allende was driving a 2007 Ford F-250 down Latimer Road, a few miles southwest of Manchester, Oklahoma, when the vehicle veered off the right side of the road. Allende’s attempt to remedy the situation led to an overcorrection that caused the Ford to veer off the left side of the road and roll over 1.5 times before coming to a stop.
The rollover caused Allende to be ejected from the vehicle, resulting in multiple injuries to his legs, torso, and internal organs. The Alfalfa County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) transported Allende to St. Mary’s Medical Center in Enid, Oklahoma for treatment where medical professionals later decided to transport him by medi-flight to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. He was admitted to OU Medical Center in critical condition. Further updates on Allende’s condition have not been provided.
There was another person occupying Allende’s vehicle at the time of the crash, but reports indicate that this passenger, 20-year-old Martin Villalobos of Great Bend, Kansas, did not suffer any injuries. An investigation into the cause of the crash and the condition of the driver remains underway, but the preliminary investigation has revealed that neither occupant was using a seatbelt.
