A Guymon, Okla., man suffered full-body injuries after an accident Monday morning in Texas County, Okla., which his vehicle caught fire.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said the accident happened around 8:15 a.m. Monday on U.S. Highway 54, about six miles west of Goodwell, Okla.

A 2020 Ram Promaster cargo van and a 2005 FRHT semi were both westbound on Hwy. 54, when the Promaster struck the semi in the rear due to what the OHP said was unknown reasons. The report said the van later departed the roadway to the right and caught on fire.

The van’s driver, 46-year-old Daniel Liese of Guymon, was transported to Texas County Memorial Hospital in Guymon and was later flown by Apollo Med to University Medical Center in Lubbock, Texas. He was admitted in stable condition with full-body injuries.

The semi’s driver, Ace Yocham, 37, of Hooker, Okla., was not injured. OHP said the cause of the collision was inattention. The report went on to say Liese was wearing his seat belt at the time, but Yocham was not.
