Four vehicle accident backed up traffic in Lawton

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON,Okla_A series of crashes involving four vehicles in Lawton had traffic backed up for about an hour Wednesday evening.  The accidents started at the intersection of Sheridan and Ferris.

According to witnesses, a truck driving south on Sheridan was turning left onto Ferris when he was hit in the intersection by a second black truck. That driver reportedly ran a red light. 

The second black truck continued heading north on Sheridan when it crossed over the median and hit a traffic light pole. That pole fell onto a third black truck.  

The second truck continued driving and hit a black car head-on. One person from that car left in an ambulance.  No word on that person's condition.

We're still awaiting official word on what caused the accident.
