Two treated at hospital after accident in Fletcher

Two people from Lawton received medical care following a Monday afternoon wreck on Interstate 44 after a tire's tread separated and caused a wreck east of Fletcher.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported that Jessica R. Graves, 26, and Andral R. Clarke, 42, were flown to Comanche County Memorial Hospital for treatment following the wreck. Graves was admitted in fair condition with internal trunk injuries and Clarke was treated and released for arm injuries.

Graves was driving a pickup northbound on Interstate 44 shortly after 12:45 p.m. Monday, when the left rear tire's tread separated from the tire and she lost control near mile marker 60, sending the truck off the roadway to the right, Trooper Michael Brady reported. The truck overturned 1-time and sent the un-seatbelted driver approximately 28 feet from the truck.
