A Coweta man was hurt late last night after he was involved in a pursuit by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol just north of Muskogee County on US 69, according to the patrol.

The man, whose name was withheld by the patrol, was driving a 2007 Ford Focus, pursued by Trooper Jacob Smith of Muskogee. As the pursuit approached Baker Road, Smith performed a tactical vehicle intervention, which the patrol stated caused the Focus to depart the roadway to the right and roll 2 1/2 times, coming to rest on its top.

The man was flown by helicopter to Saint Francis Hospital in Tulsa, where he was admitted with internal trunk and sternum injuries.

The wreck did an estimated $4,000 damage to the man’s car and $500 to the patrol car.
