Man Hospitalized After Four-Car Injury Wreck
McIntosh County, OK (October 1, 2018) On the afternoon of September 28th, a four-car injury wreck occurred on US 266. Officials reported that a 24-year-old man named Kyle Wood traveled westbound and tried to pull into a private drive but got rear-ended by a 1995 Ford pickup driven by an 18-year-old named Cody Honel. Honel’s vehicle pushed Wood’s vehicle into the eastbound lane, where his vehicle got hit head-on by a 2010 Jeep driven by a 34-year-old man named Daniel Sanderson. Simultaneously, Honel’s vehicle got hit by a 2003 Mitsubishi driven by a 38-year-old man Guymon Marshall. Wood was stuck inside of his vehicle for thirty minutes before emergency responders arrived at the scene. They freed him from his vehicle and then transported him via airplane to Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa for his injuries. Medical professionals confirmed that he is in critical condition. Police confirmed that the cause of the accident was Honel driving too closely behind Wood.
Vehicle Accidents in Oklahoma
Unfortunately, vehicle accidents occur frequently due to negligent driving, bad road conditions, hazardous weather conditions, and/or defective auto parts. Negligent driving consists of anything distracting the driver from completely focusing on the road, such as using a phone, driving under the influence, eating, applying makeup, and even programming a GPS. It’s very unfortunate that Wood suffered injuries in this collision. He could work with an attorney to file a personal injury lawsuit to help cover the cost of medical treatment and vehicle damage.
