Two in critical condition after head-on crash

JACKSON COUNTY, Okla._Two southwest Oklahoma women were in critical condition at last check following a car crash in Jackson County. The cars hit head-on last night around five on a curve in the road on Highway 62 about a mile east of Duke.

Two medical helicopters were called in as emergency crews worked to free one of the drivers who was trapped in the wreckage. Chesiree Puckett of Duke and Lagena Elmore of Hollis were air-lifted to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City. Troopers say they both suffered trunk and internal injuries, but were not thrown from their cars because they were wearing seat belts.
