According to a Highway Patrol report, driving while sleepy resulted in a Maud man being transported to the OU Medical Center by helicopter in critical condition.

Thaddeus Alford, 27, was driving on SH59 north of Maud at about 5 p.m. when he left the roadway to the right and over corrected. That over correction caused Alford’s 2002 Dodge to leave the roadway to the left.

The vehicle rolled one time before coming to rest on its wheels. Alford was ejected about 60 feet from where his vehicle came to rest.

He was taken by Air Evac to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City in critical condition with internal injuries.

Seatbelts were not in use. There were air bags in the vehicle but they did not deploy in the rollover accident.
