Jacob Mar, 27, of Checotah was hurt around 5 p.m. yesterday after the 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass he was driving collided head-on with a 2009 Chevrolet Suburban driven by Marlene Blue, 55, also of Checotah, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

The wreck, which happened two miles west of Checotah at the intersection of Business 69 and 1090 Road, occurred when Mar was passing a northbound vehicle on the highway and struck Blue, according to the patrol. Mar was pinned in his vehicle for 20 minutes before being freed by the Checotah Fire Department cutting him out of the car. Blue was also pinned for the same amount of time and was freed with a crowbar.

Mar was flown by helicopter to Saint John’s Hospital in Tulsa, where he was admitted with trunk and head injuries. Blue and an unidentified juvenile passenger were transferred to Saint Francis Hospital in Muskogee, where they were treated and released.

Improper passing was cited as the cause of the wreck.
