An Oklahoma Highway Patrol report states Larry Rogers, 55, was driving a 1993 Chevrolet on Lost City Road, about 11 miles north of Hulbert at approximately 5 p.m. Monday when the vehicle ran off the right side of the road, overcorrected and ran off the left side of the road. The vehicle struck a ditch rolled over and came to rest on its top. Rogers was pinned for approximately 20 minutes before being freed by the Peggs Fire Department.

Rogers was flown to St. John Medical Center in Tulsa.
