An elderly Bartlesville man who was ailing was injured Friday evening in a one-car accident on OK 123, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
Wayne “Billy” Murnan, 81, was driving a 2004 Ford F-150 truck north on 123 when it left the roadway and went through a barbed wire fence then hit an embankment, according to the report by Trooper Jim Armstrong. The accident took place at 5:28 p.m.
The accident report says that Murnan was ill at the time of the accident and that it was unknown if he was wearing a seat belt. Airbags in his pickup truck did deploy.
The OHP was assisted at the scene of the accident by the Osage County Sheriff’s Office, the Osage Nation Police Department and Bartlesville EMS.
Armstrong’s report does not say to which hospital Murnan was taken but says he was in stable condition with head, arm and trunk injuries.
