Two women were critically inured in a wreck caused by running from police, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Christa Brewer, 29, of Muskogee was driving a 1999 Toyota Corolla, being followed by police at Hancock and US 69 when she allegedly crossed the intersection and went left of center, striking a 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche driven by Gary Andrews, 63 of Muskogee, head-on, the patrol reported.

Brewer was ejected through the driver’s side window. She was transported to Saint John’s Hospital in Tulsa, where she was admitted in critical condition with trunk external, trunk internal, arm and leg injuries. Her passenger, Tanisha Barber, 36, of Muskogee, was admitted to Saint John’s in critical condition with the same injuries.

Andrews was not hurt, but his passenger, Kelli Smallen, 18, of Broken Arrow, was treated and released from Muskogee’s Saint Francis Hospital. Neither person in Brewer’s vehicle was wearing a seatbelt. Both in Andrews’ vehicle were.
