In the early morning hours of Sunday, March 31st emergency crews responded to a 2 vehicle accident 3.5 miles north of Hennessey on Hwy 81. At about 1 am two pickups traveling north from Hennessey collided sending a black Chevy pickup into the median rolling several times and coming to rest in the southbound lane of Hwy 81. The accident just north of Farmers Electric and just north of E590 Rd blocked the southbound highway while officials routed traffic in both directions using the northbound lane. 

Hennessey’s LifeEMS checked out all 5 of the occupants and determined there were no serious injuries. None of them were transported and all refused further treatment. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol worked the scene but did not respond for details about the involved or where they were from. 

The accident occurred just over the Garfield County line and Waukomis Fire was first on the scene with Hennessey Fire assisting. Waukomis Police assisted with Traffic control. No further details were available. Photo by AAH Jack Quirk
