Monday Accident in Sallisaw Injures Six

A two-vehicle accident Monday evening in Sallisaw sent five people to the hospital with what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries.

Sallisaw Police Chief Terry Franklin advised a 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue, driven by Brandon Harp, 20, of Sallisaw, was eastbound on West Redwood at approximately 5:20 p.m. and failed to stop at the stop sign at the intersection with Maple Street.

A 2000 Chevrolet SK1 pickup truck, driving by Wayne Cross, 70, of Sallisaw, was northbound on Maple Street and was unable to avoid the Oldsmobile, broadsiding the car on the right side.
Four passengers in Harp’s vehicle were all injured in the accident. A 15-year-old juvenile was taken by private vehicle to the hospital with unknown injuries before first responders arrived. Justin Jenkins, 20, of Sallisaw, was treated for cuts to his face at the scene, but refused transport by ambulance and was taken to the local hospital by private vehicle, according to Sallisaw Fire Chief Anthony Armstrong.

Two female passengers in Harp’s vehicle, Kayla Jenkins, 20 of Sallisaw, and Cailea Calvert, 18, of Vian, were both transported by Pafford EMS to NHS-Sequoyah for hip pain, according to Armstrong. Calvert was later hospitalized in Tulsa at Saint Francis Hospital with a punctured lung.

Harp was not injured in the accident.

Armstrong said initially Cross advised he was not injured, but later complained of chest pain and was transported by Pafford EMS to NHS-Sequoyah.

Harp received a citation for failure to yield at a stop sign.

In addition to the Sallisaw Police Department, Sallisaw Fire Department and Pafford EMS, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol also assisted at the scene.
