A Texas man was injured Friday afternoon when the ATV he was driving collided with a trailer being pulled by a pickup at an intersection south of Loyal, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol is reporting.
Edward Alan Bourland, 37, of San Angelo, Texas, was taken from the scene of the 3 p.m. collision by Eagle Med and flown to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City.
Bourland was admitted in critical condition with head, body, leg and arm injuries.
According to the patrol, Jason Boyd Parrish, 47, of Okeene, was driving a 2012 GMC Sierra and pulling a 6-by-16 flat-bed trailer southbound on a county road 3 miles south of Loyal. Bourland was eastbound in a 2014 model Gator ATV and failed to stop at a stop sign, colliding with the trailer being pulled by Parrish.
Following the impact, the trailer separated from the GMC, according to the report. The GMC came to rest in the east ditch of the county road and the trailer came to rest on the west side of the county road.
The Gator came to rest in the middle of the intersection, with Bourland being ejected an unknown distance from the Gator.
According to the report, seatbelts were equipped in both vehicles but only in use in the GMC. Parrish was not injured.
