Man hospitalized after Monday wreck

McALESTER — A McAlester man has been hospitalized in critical condition with head injuries after the car he was driving ran off a highway and hit several trees Monday.

Paul Lineman, 37, was taken to St. Francis Hospital by medical aircraft following the collision on U.S. Highway 69, according to a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

The patrol reported Lineman was driving a 2004 Chrysler Concord northbound on the highway at about 6:10 p.m. when it ran off the right side of the road just north of Stringtown and hit trees. He was reportedly pinned in the wreckage for 15 minutes before he was extracted by the Stringtown Fire Department.

Trooper John Ivey, of the Coalgate detachment of OHP, reports the cause of the collision is unknown but could be attributed to a medical condition.

Lineman was wearing a seat belt at the time of the wreck, and the air bag in his car deployed, OHP reported.
