OTTAWA COUNTY, Okla. — A Grove woman was admitted to a Joplin hospital Tuesday night after being injured in a one-vehicle collision in rural Ottawa County.
Summer Crowe, 18, was taken to Mercy Hospital and admitted in fair condition with head, trunk, and leg injuries, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. She was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Chandler Jacobson, 23, of Galena, Kan.
Crowe was trapped in the vehicle for 24 minutes before being extricated by Quapaw Tribal Fire, the patrol said.
Jacobson’s vehicle was northbound on 680 Rd around 5:30 p.m. traveling at a high rate of speed when he failed to negotiate a curve. The vehicle ran off the road, rolled, and struck a telephone pole, coming to rest on its top, the patrol said.
Jacobson was also seen at Mercy Hospital. He was treated and released, the patrol said.
