Gebhart, a passenger in the 2016 Dodge Ram pickup truck, was taken by Pafford EMS to a Muskogee hospital and admitted in stable condition with arm and head injuries.

The OHP reported Gilliland was pulling a trailer westbound on I40, when he departed the roadway left into the median, came back on the roadway, departed the roadway to the right, jack-knifed, overturned and came to rest on the north side of the road.

The OHP reported the Vian Fire Department helped extricate Gebhart from the vehicle.
