The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said ice on the Salt Creek Bridge north of Asher was a factor in a crash Wednesday evening that injured three people, including a child.
That accident occurred about 6:17 p.m. on U.S. 177, about six miles north of Asher.
A 1975 Chevy Pickup, driven by Cheyeann Mareea Adams, 20, of Asher, was northbound when the vehicle hit black ice on the bridge, the patrol said. The vehicle crossed the bridge, departed the roadway to the right and rolled one time, coming to rest on a tree.
Her passengers were both ejected about five feet from the vehicle's point of rest, troopers said.
Adams was transported by REACT EMS to SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital Shawnee, where she was treated for arm and leg injuries, and then released.
Passenger Seirra Desiree Hodge, 23, of Shawnee, was transported by REACT to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where she was treated for head and neck injuries and then released.
Another passenger, a 4-year-old from Shawnee whose name was withheld by OHP, went by ambulance to Children's Hospital in Oklahoma City, where the child was listed in critical condition with head, neck and internal injuries.
The OHP listed cause of collision as unsafe speed for ice on the roadway.
Seat belts were not in use, the patrol reported.
The crash was investigated by Trooper Joe Porter #275 of the Pottawatomie County Detachment of Troop A, assisted by Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office.
