July 24, 2014

Three people were transferred by Antlers EMS after a three vehicle collision occurred in front of Bearcat Stadium in Antlers on Friday afternoon. The Antlers Police Department was on the scene working the collision while vehicles were backed up waiting for the roadway to be cleared.
According to Antlers P.D., Leslie Whitman was driving a 2008 Kia, which belonged to May’s Home Health, when she stopped to make a left-hand turn off of HWY 271 South. Taylor Loftin, the driver of the second vehicle, was distracted and rear ended the May’s vehicle causing it to turn sideways into the northbound lane of traffic and it struck vehicle 3, a 2013 Chevy 1 ton pulling a stock trailer that was being driven by Dan Payne.
Whitman, Loftin and Whitman’s passenger - Kristie James from Atoka, were transported by ambulance to Pushmataha Hospital where they were flown out by air ambulance. Payne was transported by a private vehicle, treated and released. All three women were treated and have returned home.
Lofton, a 17 year old, was cited for: Following too closely, Inattentive driving resulting in a collision, Failure to comply with compulsory insurance law of failure to produce security verification forms, and Operating a MV without current license plate/taxes due state/improper tag.
According to the P.D. an estimated $57,000.00 worth of damage was done to the vehicles involved, as all vehicles/trailer were totaled, excluding Lofton’s.
Antlers Police Department worked another collision that took place on Friday involving Regina Chumley and James Honeywell. Chumley was heading west bound out of Antlers on HWY 3 when she had to apply her breaks to avoid hitting an unknown vehicle that didn’t not have working break lights. When Chumley began to stop, Honeywell rear ended her. There were no injuries.
