Teddy Brown, 67, of Broken Arrow was admitted at Saint Francis Hospital of Muskogee with head, internal, external and arm and leg injuries around 4 p.m. yesterday after a three-car wreck on the Muskogee Turnpike. Randy Weakley, 71, of Rogersville, Alabama was also injured but refused treatment at the scene, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Brown was driving a 2012 Nissan Frontier northbound on the turnpike behind a 2017 BMW X 6 driven by Weakley and a 2014 black Ford Focus driven by Halie Russell, 23, of Fort Gibson. Both Weakley and Russell slowed down to accommodate the flow of traffic, but Brown did not, the patrol reported.

Brown’s pickup struck Weakley’s car and then Russell’s car, then departed the roadway to the right, 75 yards into the grass. Both other vehicles came to controlled stops on the shoulder of the turnpike.

Everyone in all vehicles were wearing seatbelts, the patrol reported.
