A crash involving an allegedly drunk driver on Highway 62 in Cherokee County Friday sends a Bristow teen and Georgia man to a Tulsa hospital, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Troopers say a 2011 Nissan Murano, driven by Bradley Park, 44, of Tahlequah was headed west on 62, when his SUV crossed the center line and struck an eastbound 1998 Nissan Maxima driven by Brianah Johnson, 19, at about 5:30 p.m.

Johnson and a passenger in Peak's SUV, Jonathan Brown, 22, of Sylvester, Georgia were taken to the hospital. Both are listed in stable condition with head, back and leg injuries.

Troopers said Park was cited for drinking with his "ability impaired."

The OHP report stated Park and three passengers in his vehicle were not injured.
