DAVIDSON, Okla. (AP) – Authorities say a state highway patrol trooper was injured in a southern Oklahoma accident and was flown to a Texas hospital.

Lt. John Vincent of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol says trooper Gary Sanders had pulled over a vehicle on Thursday night for a traffic stop on the side of U.S. 183 north of Davidson. During the stop, a vehicle struck the back of Sanders’ patrol car, causing it to hit the vehicle Sanders pulled over.

It’s unclear whether Sanders was inside of his patrol car at the time of the wreck.

Vincent says Sanders was airlifted to a hospital in Fort Worth, Texas. His condition wasn’t immediately known.

Another person, whose name and condition hasn’t been released, also was taken to a hospital.
