The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported a personal injury collision occurred about 2:28 a.m. Sunday on Lake Road, about 2 miles west of Skiatook, OK in Osage County.

The patrol said the accident involved a 2012 Ford Focus driven by Kirsten Cumming (SIC,) 18, of Skiatook, OK. Cumming was transported by Life flight to Saint Francis Tulsa in critical condition, where she was admitted for whole body injuries.

A passenger in Cumming’s vehicle, a 16 year old female whose name has been withheld, of Sperry, OK was transported by Skiatook EMS to Saint John’s Tulsa in stable condition, where she was treated and released for arm and leg injuries.

A second passenger in Cumming’s vehicle, another 16 year old female whose name has been withheld, of Skiatook, OK was transported by Skiatook EMS to Saint John’s Tulsa in stable condition, where she was treated and released for leg injuries.

The Highway Patrol’s report stated Cumming’s vehicle was eluding the Osage County Sheriff’s Office. Cumming’s vehicle was traveling southbound on Lake road at a high rate of speed, failed to negotiate a curve, departed the roadway to the right, went into a broad slide, then struck a large boulder and an overhead sign before rolling one time coming to rest on its wheels into a gate and a fence before completely burning. The full details – including the use of seatbelts, the condition of the driver, and determining if any people were ejected – are still under investigation.
