OHP trooper involved in car wreck in Tillman County

TILLMAN COUNTY, Okla. - An Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper was sent to the hospital Thursday night after a crash involving his patrol car and two other vehicles.

The wreck happened Thursday afternoon on Highway 183, one mile north of Davidson, which is roughly 60 miles southwest of Lawton. An official accident report from the Highway Patrol still has not been released, but one is expected by Friday morning. The trooper was taken by helicopter to a hospital in Wichita Falls. No word on the conditions of anyone in the other two vehicles.

The highway was closed for about two hours while crews removed the wreckage.


OHP confirmed the trooper involved was Gary Sanders of Frederick, Oklahoma. He has been moved to a hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, where he was last listed in stable condition. 

Highway patrol said Trooper Sanders was in his cruiser when it was hit by a southbound pickup on Highway 183. The impact sent his car into another pickup he had stopped on the highway. The report says Sanders was pinned in the wreckage for about 40 minutes before Frederick firefighters were able to free him.
