A personal injury collision occurred May 22, 2020, at approximately 5:56 AM on SH-97 1.5 miles west of Tulsa in Osage County.
A 2005 Toyota Tacoma driven by Johnathan McClure, 26, of Sand Springs was southbound on SH-97. The OHP report states that he was traveling too fast to negotiate a turn in the rain and left the roadway to the left, over-corrected and crossed both lanes of traffic departing the roadway to the right striking a light pole. The vehicle then rolled one time and went through two fences. McClure was ejected 30 feet from the vehicle.
McClure was transported by EMSA to St. John’s Hospital in Tulsa and admitted in good condition with leg and trunk internal injuries.
The cause of the collision was reported as “too fast for weather/road conditions.”
Investigated by OHP and assisted by Sand Springs Fire Department and EMSA.
