The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported that a personal injury collision occurred at about 8:02 a.m. Saturday on US177, about two-tenths of a mile north of Fountain Road, which is located about 2 miles south of Ponca City, OK in Kay County.
The patrol said the accident involved a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban driven by Tashina Marie Quintero (SIC), 28, of Ponca City, OK. She was transported by AirEvac to OU Medical Center, where she was admitted in critical but stable condition with head, trunk internal, and leg injuries.
The Highway Patrol’s report stated that the vehicle was travelling northbound on US177. The vehicle departed the roadway to the right, reentered the roadway, crossed the center median, and entered the southbound lanes. The vehicle then departed the roadway and rolled an unknown amount of times, coming to a rest on its wheels. Quintero was ejected approximately 15 feet from the vehicle. Seatbelts were equipped, but not in use. Airbags were equipped, but did not deploy. The condition of the driver and the cause of collision are both attributed to driving under the influence.
