Talihina woman injured in accident

September 21, 2011

A Talihina woman is in
serious condition in a
Tulsa hospital following a
four wheeler accident
Sunday morning.
According to the accident
report released by the
Oklahoma Highway
Patrol, Daniella Lea
Williams, 28, of Talihina,
was a passenger on a 2011
Polaris Ranger 800 driven
by Michael S. Langley,
39, of Antlers when the
accident occurred.
According to the report,
at approximately 2 a.m. on
Sunday morning, the two
were travelling at an
unsafe speed down a dirt
driveway, seven miles east
of Antlers near Dozier
Road and State Highway
3. As Langley was driving
down the dirt driveway, he
hit a bump in the road and
lost control of the ATV.
Unable to regain control,
the ATV overturned
one and a quarter times,
ejecting Williams 20 feet
and coming to rest on top
of Langley. Although
injured in the accident,
Williams was able to use a
tractor with a front end
loader to move the ATV
off of Langley before
police and EMS arrived.
Williams was transported
from the scene by
Antlers EMS and admitted
to St. Francis Hospital in
Tulsa. She is listed in
serious condition having
suffered head and trunk
internal injuries.
Langley was transported
to McAlester Regional
Medical Center by Antlers
EMS and is listed in stable
condition with injuries to
his head and arm.
According to the report,
the unsafe speed at which
Langley was operating the
ATV played a contributing
factor in the accident.
Alcohol may have also
been a contributing factor.
