PAWNEE COUNTY, Okla. (KFOR) –

A deputy in Pawnee County is recovering after being injured in a wreck this past weekend.

Around 1:20 p.m. on Sept. 11, Pawnee County Deputy Scott McCowen was responding to a non-emergency call when he was involved in a wreck.

Investigators say McCowen was heading eastbound on Hwy 64 when a Dodge Ram attempted to turn southbound onto 35400 Road.

Haga told deputies that he ran because he didn’t have a driver’s license, had a firearm on him, and was a convicted felon. He also admitted to smoking meth before driving.

Haga was arrested on complaints of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, operating a vehicle under revocation, possession of a schedule 2 narcotic, possession of a schedule 1 narcotic, leaving the scene of an injury accident, failure to wear a seatbelt, and failure to yield to oncoming traffic.

Deputy McCowen suffered head, knee, and leg injuries but was released from the hospital. He is expected to make a full recovery.
