A Blackwell man was hospitalized Wednesday afternoon after an accident in Tulsa.

Richard Hughes, 63, was driving a 2001 Peterbilt semi on Interstate 444, westbound to Interstate 244 northbound ramp when he swerved to avoid another collision. His truck departed the roadway to the right and went up an embankment, where it struck a light pole and sign support.

Hughes was pinned for about an hour and 45 minutes before he was extricated by the Tulsa Fire Department. He was taken by EMSA to St. John’s Hospital in Tulsa with leg injuries and was admitted in stable condition.
