• Daily Leader staff report
A Balko, Okla., man is listed in stable condition following a one-vehicle accident Saturday morning in rural Beaver County, Okla., according to a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
The accident occurred around 2 a.m. Saturday on a county road 12 miles south and four miles east of Turpin, Okla., when a 2004 Ford Explorer, driven by John Dane Morris, 39, of Balko, was northbound on the county road.
The OHP said for an unknown reason, Morris swerved to the left, and the Explorer went off the left side of the road. Morris overcorrected, tried to re-enter the roadway and went into a broadslide. The vehicle rolled two times, coming to rest on its wheels.
The OHP reported Morris was ejected out of the driver’s side window on the second roll. He was taken to Southwest Medical Center in Liberal, where he was admitted with head, trunk and internal injuries. He was airlifted to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where he is listed in stable condition.
Seat belts were equipped but not in use, according to the OHP.
