Five people were seriously injured last night in a wreck near Oktaha, according to emergency workers.

Two were flown by helicopter to Tulsa hospital, two were transported to a Muskogee hospital by Muskogee County EMS and later transferred to Tulsa, and the fifth was taken directly to a Tulsa hospital by EMS under emergency status.

No names have yet been released, nor have the circumstances surrounding the wreck.

UPDATE: A family member of one of the injured parties says they were all in a side-by-side All-Terrain Vehicle when it hit a deer, then hit three trees and overturned. Three of the injured parties are children, according to the family member, who requested prayer for all the victims. Officials have not confirmed those details.
