Two Injured in Two Wrecks in Cherokee County

Oklahoma Highway and Lake Patrol troopers had a busy weekend in the area, and investigated two collisions in Cherokee County, a water craft collision on the Arkansas River in Sequoyah County and a wreck on Interstate 40, about one mile west of Webbers Falls.

In Cherokee County, one man was injured after losing control of his motorcycle at about 2:49 p.m. Friday on a county road one mile east and three miles south of Tahlequah. The OHP reported Thomas Caldwell, 55, of Welling was driving south of Tahlequah when, for an unknown reason, he lost control of his 2001 Kawasaki, causing the vehicle to wobble and fall over. Caldwell was transported by Air Evac to St. Johns Medical Center in Tulsa with head injuries. He was listed in stable condition. The wreck was still under investigation at the time the report was released. Caldwell was not wearing a helmet, according to the report.

In another collision, a Tahlequah man was flown to Washington Regional Hospital in Fayetteville, Arkansas after his vehicle left the road and struck a fence. The OHP trooper reported Ronald Lamb was driving a 2000 Chevrolet pickup truck north on Old Toll Gate Road when, for an unknown reason, he left the road to the left, then over-corrected and left the road to the right, where the truck struck a fence and came to a stop in a ditch. The wreck happened at 4:08 p.m. Sunday. Lamb was wearing his seat belt, the OHP reported.
