Driver critically injured after driving off roadway

Posted: Updated:

ELGIN, Okla._One woman was hurt in a single-car crash in northern Comanche County.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says the victim missed the curve of U.S. Highway 277 just north of Elgin, ran off the road, and then slammed head on into a tree. The victim was pinned in the wreckage, so crews had to use the Jaws of Life to get her out. The woman was taken by helicopter to the OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City in critical condition.

Troopers have not yet been able to determine how fast she was going, or the precise cause of the crash.
