Accident Sends Two to Hospital

Two persons were hospitalized after a head-on collision at about 6:06 p.m. Friday. The collision was about seven miles north of Sallisaw on U.S. Highway 59. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported Nancy Byrd, 71, of Muldrow was driving a 1999 Lincoln south when, for an unknown reason, she went left of center and hit a 2000 Chevrolet van traveling north and driven by William Cochran-Cline, 32, of Tahlequah. Cline was transported by ambulance to a Little Rock, Arkansas hospital where he was listed in critical condition with head, trunk, internal and external, leg and arm injuries. Byrd was transported by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Fort Smith where she was listed in stable condition with internal trunk and leg injuries. A 6-year-old girl who was a passenger in the van was transported to Sparks Regional Medical Center in Fort Smith, where she was treated for head and external trunk injuries and released. The OHP reported both drivers were pinned for about 20 minutes and were extricated by the Brushy and Sallisaw Fire Departments. By Sally Maxwell, Senior News Director
