KILDARE — Newkirk fire chief Adam Longcrier reports that the two subjects injured in today’s accident were airlifted from the scene, one in critical condition and one in stable condition.

Longcrier said that Newkirk fire and ambulance crews responded to a report of two-vehicle accident at 7:50 a.m. at the intersection of Prentice and Kildare Road.

“When we arrived we had one vehicle fully engulfed and one subject trapped in the other vehicle,” said Longcrier. “We had two female patients and I called for Ponca City crews to assist for the added manpower. Kildare fire units were on the way.”

Longcrier said one of the females was extricated out of a ditch and that she is in stable condition in St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa. Her injuries reportedly consist of multiple fractures.

“The second female was extricated out of the vehicle and was the most critical with a broken femur, fractured right arm and a head injury. She was airlifted to Wichita, Kan. With the help of Ponca City crews we treated the patients in the back of Newkirk ambulances until the medical choppers arrived.”

Longcrier said Kildare firefighters tended to the burning vehicle and that AirEvac responded from Ponca City and Mediflight responded from Stillwater.

Longcrier said the intersection is closed until further notice while Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers investigate the scene.
