Polk County Deputies responded to a call just after 11 p.m. Monday night after a call came in to 911 stating a wreck had occurred on Highway 246, west of Hatfield. When searching for the accident, Polk County deputies and first responders from Hatfield realized that the wreck was much deeper into Oklahoma than expected.
Upon arrival, first responders determined the wreck was approximately one to two miles past the Zafra church, located inside LeFlore County, Oklahoma. The female driver of the vehicle was alert and panicked according to dispatch reports and a male passenger, in his 30’s, was pinned under the dually truck. After Hatfield first responders, Southwest EMS, and Polk County deputies assisted at the scene and freed the passenger from under the wreckage, Oklahoma Highway Patrol arrived to take control of the scene. The male passenger was airlifted to an unknown hospital with abdominal injuries and more.
There are no further details available in this case at this time.
