One taken to hospital following 2-vehicle wreck

Woodward, Okla. — One person was taken to the hospital following a 2-vehicle accident at the intersection of 5th St. and Oklahoma Ave. around noon on Friday, Aug. 17.

The unidentified man was driving a white Ford pickup when he collided with a Hummer H3, which was driven by Denise Carter, of Arizona.

Carter told The News that she was traveling westbound on Oklahoma Ave. when the white pickup attempted to make a left turn from the eastbound lanes of Oklahoma onto 5th St. in front of her.

"I swerved and stomped on my brakes and I thought I had missed him, but he caught my front end," Carter said as she pointed toward the damage on the front passenger side of her vehicle.

The impact of the collision tore off her front passenger side fender, which lay in the street alongside a front end guard, which was also broken off one of the vehicles.

After hitting her front end, Carter said the pickup "hooked around," spinning the vehicle almost 180 degrees as it jumped a curve and drove onto a nearby lot of land before coming to a stop.

After officers arrived on scene to investigate the accident, Woodward County EMS was called to come check on Carter and tend to the driver of the white pickup, who was eventually loaded onto an ambulance and taken to Woodward Regional Hospital for treatment.  Details about his injuries are unknown.

After her examination by EMS, Carter told The News, "I'm okay, I'm a little shook up and my knee hurts from trying to jerk out of the way, but I don't need to go to the hospital or anything."

A police report was not immediately available.
