A Gore man was hospitalized Saturday following a one-vehicle crash at 9:01 p.m. Saturday.
Loyd Williams, 47, was transported by Pafford EMS to Sparks Regional Medical Center in Fort Smith and then to Washington Regional Medical Center in Fayetteville where he was admitted in stable condition with head and internal trunk injuries.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) reported Williams was a passenger in a 2008 Chevrolet Corvette driven by Lyman Lee Gorman, 46, also of Gore. Gorman was not injured in the crash the OHP reported.
The OHP trooper investigating the crash reported Gorman was driving west on U.S. Highway 64, about two miles east of Gore, at an unsafe speed in the rain, when the vehicle ran off the road to the left, went off a steep embankment and came to rest in the trees.
Williams was pinned in the vehicle for about one hour and 35 minutes, the trooper reported. The report states that the driver’s ability was impaired by alcohol.
Both the driver and the passenger were wearing seatbelts.
The OHP was assisted at the scene by Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Department, Gore Fire Department, Gore Police Department, Vian Fire Department and Vian Police Department.
