Cruz Michael Newman, 19, of Fairview, was injured in a rollover wreck Thursday in Major County. The incident occurred at 12:15 p.m. on a county road approximately two miles north and 1.9 miles east of Fairview.
Newman was driving a 2000 GMC Sierra eastbound on the county road. According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol report, he was going too fast for the road conditions. His vehicle departed the roadway to the right, going into a broad slide. The pickup went through a barb wire fence, rolling one time and coming to rest on its wheels. Newman was wearing a seatbelt.
Newman was transported by Major County EMS to Fairview Regional Medical Center and later transferred to OU Medical in Oklahoma City where he was admitted in stable condition with a trunk internal injury.
Trooper Donald Kraft investigated, assisted by Trooper Jeff Steelman, the Major County Sheriff’s Office and Major County EMS.
