  • A Shawnee man who was critically injured in a U.S. 177 accident earlier this week was driving at a high rate of speed before that crash occurred, a Shawnee police report shows.
    Ryan Allen McCracken, 32, remained hospitalized Friday and was listed in serious condition, according to a spokeswoman from OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City.
    McCracken, who was previously listed in critical condition, was injured about 2:53 a.m. Tuesday in a one-vehicle accident on U.S. 177 at Kickapoo Spur.
    According to the accident report completed by Cpl. Casey Vague, McCracken was driving a 2014 Nissan northbound on U.S. 177 when his vehicle departed the roadway to the right and hit a guardrail before striking a bridge rail, with reports indicating McCracken was ejected.
    Unsafe speed was listed as the contributing factor to the accident, with the report showing the driver was exceeding the legal limit. The report indicates a witness told officers McCracken passed them going about 140 mph.
    Shawnee police, firefighters and REACT EMS paramedics responded to that overnight crash. McCracken was transported with head, internal and external trunk injuries, as well as injuries to his arms and legs, the report shows.
