CANTON, Okla. — A 90-year-old Longdale man was injured Wednesday in a two-vehicle accident near Canton in Blaine County.
Clinton Ray Bartel was taken to Okeene Municipal Hospital, then transferred to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. He was admitted in stable condition with head, arm, leg and trunk injuries, according to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol accident report.
The accident happened at 11:02 a.m. on Oklahoma 51 2 miles east of Canton.
According to the report, Bartel was driving a 2017 Ford Focus on County Road N2500. He stopped at a stop sign, then pulled out in front of a 2006 Freightliner semi driven by Michael Bradley Trimble, 43, of Guymon. Trimble took evasive action to the left, and Bartel's vehicle hit the semi on the passenger side.
According to the report, the condition of both drivers was apparently normal, and the cause of the accident was failure to yield. Both drivers were using seat belts.
