Two Claremore women were sent to a Tulsa hospital Tuesday night, following a single-vehicle accident in Wagoner County.
Carole Rackley, 28, of Claremore, was driving her 2006 Dodge SRX northbound on a county road five miles east of Catoosa in Wagoner County at 10:14 p.m. Tuesday, according to the report of Oklahoma Highway Patrol Trooper Todd Metzger.
Traveling with Rackley was passenger, Jennifer Fennell, also of Claremore.
When Rackley looked down then looked up, she drove off the roadway and struck a concrete curve, causing the vehicle to roll one half time before coming to rest on its roof, according to the report.
Following the accident, Rackley was transported by Pafford EMS to St. Johns Hospital in Tulsa, where she was admitted in stable condition with trunk-internal and arm injuries.
Fennell also was transported to St. Johns Hospital in Tulsa by Pafford EMS, and was admitted in stable condition with leg injuries.
Both women were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the accident, according to the trooper’s report.
Trooper Metzger is of the Wagoner County Detachment of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
