Team Radio Marketing Group - February 9, 2019 9:12 am

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported a personal injury collision occurred about 11:59 p.m. Friday on US177, about 1.3 miles south of Eagle Nest Road on the Salt Fork Creek Bridge, which is approximately 2 miles north and 4.5 miles east of Marland, OK in Noble County.

The patrol said the accident involved a 2013 Dodge Avenger driven by Teyonna Weasel Bear (SIC), 26, of Ponca City, OK. She was transported by Ponca City EMS to Alliance Health Ponca City Hospital in stable condition where she was evaluated for head and trunk internal injuries. She was then transferred to St. John hospital in Tulsa, OK where she was admitted for her injuries.

The Highway Patrol’s report stated that the vehicle was southbound on US177. The vehicle departed the roadway to the right. The vehicle struck the bridge rail, crossed the center line, and came to rest in the opposite lane of travel. The driver was extricated, by unknown means, by the Ponca City Fire Department. Seatbelts were equipped and in use; airbags were deployed. The report notes an odor of alcohol on the driver and attributes the cause of the collision to driving while under the influence of alcohol.

Investigated by Trooper Coby Snyder #271 of the Kay/Noble detachment of Troop K. Assisted by Noble County Sheriff’s Office, Otoe-Missouria Police department, Kay County Sheriff’s Office, and Ponca City Fire/EMS.

This report is based upon the trooper’s investigation of this collision. It may contain the opinion of the trooper.
