One driver was injured, while another was uninjured in a wreck Monday evening in Beaver County, Okla.

Just after 6 p.m. Monday, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported a 2007 Chevy pickup was westbound on Beaver County Road EW 34, and a 2004 Dodge pickup was eastbound on the same road.

OHP said both vehicles were driving in the middle of the roadway, and when they met at the hillcrest, the Chevy swerved left and hit a fence post and utility pole.

The Chevy swerved right, OHP said, coming to rest in the ditch and hitting nothing. The driver of that vehicle, 35-year-old Sarah Rae Hubbard of Laverne, Okla., was pinned for about 45 minutes and was extricated by the Beaver Fire Department and Elmwood Fire Department.

Hubbard was transported by Booker, Texas, EMS to Ochiltree General Hospital in Perryton, Texas. She was later flown to Northwest Texas Hospital in Amarillo, Texas, where she was admitted for leg injuries and listed in stable condition.

The driver of the Dodge pickup, Mark Lee Frazier, 64, of Follett, Texas, was not injured. OHP said Hubbard’s condition is under investigation, as is the cause of the accident.

Seat belts were not in use in the Chevy pickup, and it is unknown if they were in use in the Dodge.
