PEGGS — A 7-year-old girl was critically injured Thursday when the car she was riding in was rear-ended by a sport utility vehicle.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Ashley Chamberlain of Chelsea was transported to Tahlequah City Hospital, where she was admitted and treated for head injuries. The child’s mother, Lisa Chamberlain, 27, refused treatment at the scene.

Two occupants of the 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe, driver Jessica J. Martin, 17, and Eric Martin, 10, both of Peggs, were transported to W.W. Hastings Indian Hospital in Tahlequah, treated and released. A third occupant, Brandi Haddock, 16, of Locust Grove left the scene with a parent and was to be treated for minor injuries at an unknown location.

Three occupants of a 2001 Dodge pickup were uninjured.

According to the OHP, all three vehicles were southbound on Oklahoma 82 at 2:53 p.m., when Jessica Martin’s SUV struck the rear of Chamberlain’s 2000 Plymouth Neon, which rear-ended the pickup. The OHP reports states Chamberlain was stopped behind the pickup, which was waiting to make a left-hand turn.

Seat belts were in use by all occupants in all vehicles. Only the airbag in Martin’s SUV deployed.
