3 Injured In Rogers County Crash After Driver Falls Asleep

Posted: Updated:
ROGERS COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Three Odessa, Texas, residents were taken to the hospital after their truck went off the Will Rogers Turnpike early Tuesday morning near the Verdigris River. 

The 2016 Ford F-250 pickup, driven by 25-year-old David Lee Hall, was driving westbound on the turnpike just northeast of Catoosa when he fell asleep, causing the truck to leave the road to the left and go into the center media, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol collision report shows.

The truck traveled in the median for about one-eighth of a mile before striking the edge of the embankment and then going airborne for about 60 feet. 

When the truck made contact with the ground, it continued traveling for about 900 feet before striking a concrete bridge pillar and finally stopping, the report states. 
One of the people in the truck were able to walk back up to the road and flag someone down for help. 

One lane of the turnpike was briefly closed as first responders worked the scene. 

Hall was taken to a Tulsa hospital in serious condition with head and internal injuries. His two passengers, Courtney Paige Clogt, 22, and Kyle James Fix, 27, were also taken by EMS to a Tulsa hospital. Clogt is in serious condition with head and internal injuries. Fix is in critical condition with head, internal, arm and leg injuries, troopers say.

Clogt was the only occupant wearing a seatbelt, according to the report.
