A Ponca City woman was injured in a one-vehicle accident north of Tonkawa at 10:44 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Jessica Kendel, 26, was transported by Blackwell ambulance to Blackwell Regional Medical Center and then flown by Eagle Med to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita, the patrol reported. She was listed in stable condition with head and trunk internal injuries, according to the report.

Troopers said the collision occurred on U.S. 177 just south of Hartford, north of Tonkawa. Kendel was driving a 2004 Ford Explorer northbound on U.S. 177 and overcorrected when attempting to pass another vehicle, the report said. The vehicle left the roadway to the right, hit a ditch and rolled an undetermined number of times. Kendel was ejected out of the front windshield 20 feet from the vehicle, the report said.
