OHP: Alcohol to blame for Osage County wreck

According to reports from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, alcohol was to blame for a single-vehicle accident last week in Osage C0unty.

According to the OHP, the wreck occurred at 1 a.m. June 28, on 66th West Avenue, which is 0.1 miles north of 63rd Street North, about 8 miles south and 2 miles west of the Skiatook city limits.

At that time, a 2008 Hyundai Elantra, driven by 21-year-old Cody Allen Wilkerson of Tulsa, was southbound on 66th West Avenue and “departed the roadway right for approximately 130 feet, impacting a concrete wall.” The vehicle then rolled 1/2 time, before coming to rest on its top.

Wilkerson was transported by ambulance to St. John Medical Center in Tulsa, where he was admitted in stable condition with head, trunk internal and trunk external injuries.

The condition of the driver was listed as “odor of alcohol” and the cause of the collision as “DUI.”
