One cited, one hospitalized in crash

Traffic backs up on Chandler Road as emergency personnel respond to a two-car collision Friday afternoon at the intersection of Chandler Road and the Muskogee Turnpike’s west frontage road. Muskogee Police Officer James Folsom said a 2013 Chevrolet Equinox driven by Phyllis Russell, 59, of Fort Gibson was attempting to turn left and go north on 41st Street and pulled into the path of a 2014 Chevrolet pickup, driven by Randi Sanders, 29, of Muskogee, which was going west on Chandler Road. The accident was reported at 3:51 p.m. Friday. Russell was cited for failure to yield, Folsom said. Folsom could not determine if seat belts were in use. He said the airbag in the Equinox deployed.
