Crash shuts down county blacktop

Posted in:

Calumet blacktop at the County Line intersection was shut down for more than five hours last Saturday after a crash involving two semi-trucks.

James Howard Hicks, 51, of Foley, Ala., was taken to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, admitted in stable condition and treated for trunk internal injuries, according to a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

The report said the 2017 Kenworth tractor-trailer Hicks was driving was struck by a 2013 Kenworth tractor-trailer driven by Luis Garcia, 52, Enid.

The semi driven by Garcia was driving west on County Line and failed to yield at the intersection’s stop sign.

Both vehicles left the roadway and Hicks’ Ken-worth caught fire, according to the report.

Garcia was treated and released at Mercy Hospital Kingfisher. His injuries weren’t specified in the report.

The report was filed by Trooper Mark Williams of the Kingfisher County Detachment of Troop J. He was assisted at the scene by Trooper Jimmy Chaloupek, Kingfisher County Sheriff’s Office, Canadian County Sheriff’s Office, Okarche Fire Department and Kingfisher EMS.
