A Tulsa man was seriously injured in a crash in a Pittsburg County construction zone on Tuesday, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.
The 25-year-old was on foot at a one-lane site near Blocker and Hickory Hill roads in Crowder about 9:30 a.m. when a vehicle failed to stop for traffic control personnel, striking the Tulsan as well as a 19-year-old McAlester man and a parked vehicle, troopers reported.
The Tulsan was flown to a Tulsa hospital in serious condition with internal and leg injuries, according to the report. The McAlester man had arm injuries and was taken to a hospital there.
The vehicle’s driver, an 84-year-old man also from McAlester, was not injured, the report states.
Troopers said the driver’s condition was apparently normal. They attributed the cause of the crash to inattentive driving.
