A Blackwell woman, man and two children were injured in a collision about 5:45 p.m. Thursday on U.S. Highway 177 at the intersection of Peckham Road, three miles south and two miles east of Braman.

Katelyn Hillhouse, 21, of Blackwell was driving a 2004 Nissan Maxima which collided with a 2008 Peterbilt driven by Johnny Chick, 43, of Pampa, Texas. Chick was not injured.

Hillhouse was flown to Wesley Medical Center by Eagle Med in critical but stable condition. She was admitted with head and trunk injuries, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

A passenger in Hillhouse’s car, Robert Chessher, 30, of Blackwell, was taken by Blackwell ambulance to Alliance Health Blackwell and then transferred by Blackwell ambulance to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. He was admitted there in critical but stable condition with a head injury, the patrol said.

Two children, a 3-year-od boy and 9-month-old girl, were treated at Alliance Health Blackwell for minor head injuries and released, the patrol reported.

The patrol’s report said Hillhouse was westbound on Peckham Road and the truck driven by Chick was northbound on U.S. 177. Hillhouse failed to stop at the stop sign and struck the passenger side door of the truck.
