Wonder what happened?! It never ceases to amaze me that one person's accident can affect so many lives....how many people, including myself were late for work because either the person had a medical condition, driving to fast, texting, or whatever the reason for the crash?! Each of us should remember that OUR decisions ALWAYS impacts others even if we don't know them!!! Prayers to the family and to the driver of that vehicle.

I was traveling south on 75 when I discovered the accident and saw the traffic directed to a detour by law enforcement. I was going to have to take an alternate route since I had to go northbound on 75 (right in path of wreckage) once I dropped my son off at school. I dropped my child at school and then took an alternate route at Hwy 67. I said a prayer for the person(s) involved in wreckage and those affected. Such a beautiful day, but not so beautiful for this dear one involved in the accident-how sad. I continue to pray for the person. But by the grace of God go I.

That is a very dangerous section of road to be traveling. Since they added the wal-mart. There is a intersection right at 75 & 126 that will eventually get someone killed. When you have cars turning west off 75 to wal-mart and also have cars turning east at the same intersection its impossible to see cars coming down the highway because of people pulling right into the middle of the intersection to wait. No Stop signs!!! I've seen more then one wreck at this location. Not sure if this intersection was the cause of the wreck but make me wonder...

I totally agree with you. Everytime I pull out of that Walmart I think "someone is going to die here". Very poor planned traffic control off of a major busy highway. Not to mention not a single light at that intersection. Maybe a few lights should have gone up with the brand new "Welcome to Glenpool" signs.

Glenpools still developing behind Wal-mart. So It going to get busier!! Had people dart across the highway when I'm driving 65mph and had to slow down for them.

Even before WalMart, that stretch of highway all the way into Okmulgee is known for accidents.

The exit just north of the accident site would be used instead of the dangerous access to Wal-Mart at 126th and 75, but our wonderful city government would rather spend money on expensive welcome signs, huge city buildings, loads of new city vehicles and other things that benifit city employees instead of traffic lights that might save someone's life. Without the turn signals at 121st and 75 ( that any third grader could foresee a need for) it is also dangerous to turn west toward the front of Wall-Mart.

I agree. 75 has always be deadly and the 55 miles an hour sign is just decoration for the stretch starting at the turnpike gate to over the 121st bridge. People pass going 70 mph and I wonder if they realize that the speed is there for a reason. So many people have died right there and there are no cops to patrol that area. Maybe we can help our city budget by having a police officer sitting at the top of that hill once in awhile and ticketing those who disregard not only the speed but lives that they swerve around to go that speed.

I don't know how many times I had to slam on the brakes for the dummies pulling out of the Wal Mart. I thought for sure they were going to block that road because of highway traffic but they didn't. It amazes me how people just pull right out into the traffic that is going 65+ mph there.

They don't want lights on the highway which is why they are building the over pass at 111th. I have been in gpool for 15 years and always wished for the bridge now its happening but now we need to do something about them folks that pull out from walmart.

From 131st down to 145th it has been a death zone for as long as I can remameber. Grandparents lived in Okmulgee so we always have seen bad accidents in and around glenpool.

The city of Glenpool does not make the decision to put up the traffic light or extra lighting.. the Department of Transportation are the ones who control those decisions.. t

121st & Highway 75....and they needed a helicopter? It would take longer to get the helicopter dispatched, let alone actually arrive than it would have to just transport the patient. Nice way to delay patient care again EMS Minus.

Glenpool, too bad you don't have EMSA.

Who are you to make that judgment call? Did you see the patient or know the extent of the injury? I don't think so. Did you take into consideration the heavy amount of construction in that area? Or the fact that this was early in the morning and the amount of rush hour traffic? Don't you think in an accident of that magnitude, to transport a serious patient in that kind of traffic is not only dangerous to the patient but also a dangerous addition with an ambulance running hot through morning traffic?
So I commend EMS *PLUS* for the decision they made.

Jennifer is 19 years old. She is in Critacl Condition with brain trauma. They have already done surgery once to relieve the pressure. They do not know right now if she is going to make it but she is a fighter and all her family and friends are praying that God will help her pull through this. Please keep her in your prayers.
