The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports several troopers assisted the Pittsburg County Sheriff’s Office with an oil field explosion.

At 12:35 p.m. the Highway Patrol reported numerous injuries at a well site three to four miles west of Quinton and State Highway 31. SH31 was closed at Holt Road west of Blocker.

The Quinton Police Department said reports indicate a head blew off a gas well. A medical helicopter responded, a dispatcher said.
