A Midwest City woman and her two grandchildren were hospitalized Monday evening following a two-vehicle accident in Bridge Creek.

Pearl D. Spencer, 62, was driving east on Fox Lane in a 2009 Hyundai at about 5:49 p.m. Troopers said she failed to yield at a stop sign at the intersection of Fox Ln. and Highway 4.

A 2003 Ford van, which was traveling north on Highway 4, hit the rear passenger side of the car. The van rolled once.
Spencer suffered trunk and leg injuries. She was transported by Tuttle EMS to Norman Regional Hospital, and was listed in good condition.

The two girls, ages 5 and 7 both from Tuttle, were transported to OU Medical Center by Tuttle EMS. They were then transferred to the Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City with head injuries. The seven-year-old was listed in critical condition. The five-year-old was in good condition.

The driver of the van Mikeal T. Hood, 29 of Yukon, was treated on the scene for external trunk and arm injuries.
Passengers Donald J. Martin 47 of Atlanta, Ga. and Matthew Malone, 20 of Yukon were also treated and released. Martin was treated on-scene for a minor head injury. Malone was transported to Norman Regional Hospital where he was treated for external trunk and arm injuries, and later released.

Troopers said Malone was the only person not using a seat belt. The five-year-old girl was not using a child restraint, troopers said.

Bridge Creek fire chief Todd Lambert said they respond to several calls at that intersection each year.

“This is a terrible, terrible intersection,” Lambert said. “It needs a light or something, because I’ve worked more bad accidents in this intersection than any other in my 25 years as a firefighter.”

Bridge Creek and Tuttle Fire Departments, as well as the the Canadian and Grady County Sheriff’s Departments assisted on scene.
