Three hurt in Fort Gibson crash


— At least three people were injured and four people refused treatment after a two-car collision in Fort Gibson, said Lt. Brandon Combs of the Fort Gibson Police Department. Three people were transported by Muskogee County Emergency Medical Service to EASTAR Health System, said Rebecca Williamson, a Muskogee County EMS spokeswoman. Combs said a 2010 Ford Focus driven by Jerrie Kavanagh of Tahlequah was traveling westbound on U.S. 62 when a 2011 Ford van driven by Judith Mathis, also of Tahlequah, failed to yield when turning eastbound from Willey Road. The Focus spun around and came to rest in the median. Traffic on U.S. 62 was backed up for almost 45 minutes while emergency personnel worked the collision.
