The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports two Kay County residents were injured in an accident about 6:35 p.m. Thursday on Hubbard Road, half a mile east of county road “P” Street, about two miles south and two miles east of Blackwell.

Dakota K. Henriksen, 22, of Ponca City, was transported three hours after  the collision to Alliance Health Ponca City by Trooper Malcolm Deming. He was admitted in stable condition with head, trunk and leg injuries.

William G. McAllaster, 19, of Blackwell, was transported by personal vehicle to the Blackwell Hospital. He was treated and released for a head injury.

The Highway Patrol report said Henriksen was driving a 2010 Cadillace SRX SUV eastbound on Hubbard Road and left the roadway to the right for an unknown reason, re-entered the roadway in a broad slide and then departed the roadway to the left.

McAllaster was westbound on Hubbard, driving a 2013 Ford F-150. He attempted to avoid a head-on collision and departed the roadway to the right.

Henriksen’s vehicle hit McAllaster’s truck along the north roadside, causing both vehicles to roll and come to rest in the north ditch.

McAllaster was wearing a seat belt and Henriksen was not. Airbags deployed in both vehicles.

Henriksen’s vehicle became engulfed in flames that were put out by the Blackwell Fire Department and he fled the scene on foot. He was found by a trooper and transported for treatment.

The Highway Patrol’s report said Henriksen was impaired by alcohol and the collision was caused by alcohol impairment and distracted driving.
