Officials tell the O’Colly that one person was injured in a multi-vehicle automobile accident on Monday.
According to a statement from Oklahoma State University Police, the driver of a large truck suffered a medical issue and struck a vehicle stopped at the stoplight, pushing it for half a block before the truck crossed the median and left the roadway, driving through the grass at the Sherman E Smith Training Facility.
After that, the driver of the truck struck another vehicle -- which was stopped at Hall of Fame and Knoblock-- then continued through the intersection and rested against an electrical box.
Due to the driver’s medical issue, the vehicle did not stop until all wheels caught on fire. Stillwater fire department, OSU Police and LifeNet EMS were on the scene soon after. The driver was transported to Stillwater Medical Center.
No other injuries have been reported.
North Knoblock St. has reopened and is operating normally.
