Stanley Williams, 80, and Christopher Dugan, 21, were both hurt in a head-on collision about five miles west of Muskogee yesterday, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Williams was driving a 2018 Ford Transit van east on Oklahoma 16 and Dugan was driving a 2014 Ford F150 pick west. Williams went left of center, according to the patrol, and Dugan steered to his left to avoid a collision. Williams, however, corrected his vehicle and struck Dugan head-on. Williams’ vehicle then left the roadway to the right, struck some construction equipment and caught on fire.

Both men were transported by Muskogee County EMS to Saint John’s Hospital in Tulsa, where they were admitted with head, arm, leg, internal and external injuries. Both men were wearing seatbelts.

UPDATE: Multiple family members have called to say Williams was driving the truck and Dugan was driving the van. This report is based on the Oklahoma Highway Patrol report, however, and they have not corrected their report to reflect that.
