Wind, high speed blamed for crash

TAHLEQUAH — Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers say unsafe speeds and winds may have played a role in a one-car crash Thursday on U.S. Highway 62 south of Tahlequah.

Ricky Kerr, 51, of Wagoner was driving a 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe west on U.S. 62, west of Manard Road, when the vehicle left the road at about 1 p.m., struck an embankment, went into the air and came to a rest on its wheels.

Kerr was transported to Tahlequah City Hospital to be treated for head, trunk internal and arm injuries, according to troopers. He was listed in stable condition Thursday.

Troopers said Kerr was wearing a seat belt.
