Wrecks on Indian Nation T'pike send two to hospital

McALESTER — Wrecks on the Indian Nation Turnpike have sent at least two people to the hospital since Saturday, according to reports from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

A Tulsa man was taken to McAlester Regional Health Center early Monday after his vehicle ran off the turnpike and overturned.

Adam Ingram, 30, was not wearing his seat belt and was thrown about 50 feet from where his 2001 Chevrolet overturned off the southbound lane of the turnpike, at mile marker 24 in Pushmataha County, OHP reported.

He was listed in stable condition with head, arm, leg and internal injuries following the 5:15 a.m. accident, OHP reported. Cause of the wreck was unsafe speed for snow and ice on a roadway, according to the report.

In a Saturday afternoon wreck, a California man ran a stop sign at the turnpike exit at U.S. Highway 270 and hit a westbound vehicle, according to OHP.

Paul Golonka, 50, of Cupertino, Calif., had been driving a 2013 Mazda when he hit a 2014 Ford driven along U.S. 270 by Madison Blansett, 23, of McAlester, OHP reported.

Golonka was listed in stable condition at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa with internal and leg injuries, OHP reported, and Blansett was treated at MRHC and released. The accident happened at 1:04 p.m., according to OHP.
