Skiatook Accident Due to Road and Tire Conditions

 

Wet roads and bald tires is an accident waiting to happen. In Osage County, a Skiatook man was treated for head, arm, and internal injuries following a Wednesday night accident. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports that 49 year-old David Curtis Sampson, Jr. was driving westbound on State Highway 20 just before 11:00pm, that he was driving too fast for conditions on a wet roadway with defective tires with low tread depth. 

 

Sampson lost control and went into a broad slide, went off the roadway to the left and the truck hit a tree. A 13 year-old was in the truck. Sampson was taken to St. Francis Hospital, admitted in stable condition with head and internal injuries. Neither occupant was wearing a seatbelt. Roads are wet today. Please drive carefully, check your tires, and wear your seatbelt.
