Justin R. Henderson, 36, of Warner was flown by helicopter to Saint John’s Hospital in Tulsa late last night after the pickup he was driving wrecked on the Muskogee Turnpike, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
Henderson was driving a 1998 Chevrolet pickup westbound on the turnpike near Mile Marker 56 east of Webbers Falls when he fell asleep at the wheel, the patrol reported. His pickup departed the roadway to the right and started rolling, striking a fence and coming to a rest on its top.
Henderson was pinned inside the vehicle for 57 minutes, eventually being rescued by Webbers Falls Fire Rescue Department using the Jaws of Life.
He suffered leg and back injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt.
