OKFUSKEE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A trucker rolled his semi trying to avoid cattle in the roadway. The single-vehicle wreck took place just after 3 a.m. Saturday on State Highway 27, a few miles south of Okemah in Okfuskee County.

Calvin Parker was northbound and swerved to miss cattle in the road, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. The 2009 Freightliner left the roadway to the left and rolled a half turn coming to rest upside down.

The 37-year-old Parker was trapped in the cab for about two hours until being freed by the Okemah Fire Department. He was taken by air evac to a Tulsa Hospital where he is said to be stable with internal, arm and leg injuries.

Parker was in apparently normal condition at the time of the wreck, according to Trooper Tony Lemay. The trooper lists the cause of the wreck as a distraction outside the vehicle.
