A 1-year-old girl was injured in a one-vehicle accident south of Bartlesville in Osage County Thursday morning.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said the accident occurred at 8:19 a.m. Thursday on State Highway 123, a half mile south of County Road 2470, 7 miles south of Bartlesville.

The Patrol said Stevi Wright, 21, of Bartlesville was driving a 2007 Ford Focus southbound in the northbound lane, passing five cars. The patrol sais she was in a no-passing zone for several hundred feet before she encountered a northbound vehicle, which cause her to take evasive action, departing the roadway to the left. The patrol said her vehicle was off the roadway approximately 109 feet before it struck a private drive. The drive acted as a ramp and the car vaulted through the air for about 105 feet before striking the ground.

The Patrol reported that when the vehicle hit the ground, it rolled one and a half times, coming to rest on the east side of State Highway 123, about 243 feet south of the first point of impact.

Wright was not injured. The baby was transported by Bartlesville EMS to Jane Phillips Hospital in Bartlesville and was admitted in stable condition for observation of head, arm, trunk and leg injuries.

The Patrol reported Wright was wearing a seat belt but the child was unrestrained.
