A single vehicle collision on Fourth of July resulted in five people receiving treatment, though three of those individuals were air lifted to other care in the state.
According to reports obtained from Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the crash happened around 10:02 p.m. July 4 on County Road 2865 at Elk Road, just about 2.3 miles east of Duncan. Reports show a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu driven by Marco A. Galvan, 21, was headed southbound on the County Road when the driver failed to negotiate a curve and continued southbound into an embankment before coming to rest.
Galvan, of Duncan, was transported by AMR to Duncan Regional Hospital before Survival Flight transferred him to OU Medical Center, where he was admitted in good condition with trunk internal injuries.
Four passengers, all of Duncan, inside the vehicle were also injured. Zakry Son was transported to Duncan Regional where he was treated and released with head injuries. Zakary V. Grochowski was transported by Survival Flight to OU Medical Center, where he was also admitted in good condition with leg injuries. Cullen Cook was transported by AMR to Duncan Regional, where he was also treated and released with head injuries. The final passenger, Shawn Hines, was transported by Air Evac to Integris Southwest Medical Center where he was admitted in good condition with arm injuries.
The condition of the driver, according to OHP, is pending investigation, along with the cause of collision. Reports show the vehicle had seatbelts, though they were not in use at the time.
Nobody in the vehicle was pinned or ejected.
