Three people were injured in a collision shortly before 5 p.m. Wednesday on US Highway 177, just north of County Line Road, about 6 miles south of Ponca City.
Zachary Harvy, 36, of Ponca City, was driving a 2001 Kia Sephia northbound on U.S. 177 preparing to make a left turn into a private drive.
Leslie Strong, 52, of Morrison, was driving a 2018 Jeep Cherokee southbound on U.S. 177.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said Harvy made a left turn crossing in front of Strong’s vehicle, and in an attempt to avoid a collision, Strong departed the roadway to the right and struck Harvy’s vehicle.
Harvy was transported by Ponca City EMS to Alliance Heath Hospital in Ponca City, where he was treated and released. Two women who were passengers in his car, Alicia LeClair, 42, of Tonkawa, and Misti Allen, 22, of Ponca City, were not injured.
Strong was transported by a private vehicle to Alliance Health Hospital where he was treated and released.
Loretta Strong, 65, of Morrison, was transported by Ponca City EMS to Alliance Health, then transferred by MediFlight to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. She was admitted in stable condition with head, trunk internal and trunk external injuries.
The Highway Patrol said the cause of the collision was an improper left turn.
