Two Noble women remain hospitalized after accident

NORMAN — Two women remain hospitalized in critical condition following a head-on collision on Highway 9 near 48th Avenue Southeast on Thursday evening.

According to a release issued by the Norman Police Department, the police, along with Norman Fire and EMSStat, responded to the motor vehicle collision at 8:18 p.m.

A 2001 Ford Taurus driven by Eloise Wolfinbarger, 66, of Noble, and a 2005 Nissan Sentra driven by Tommy Stevens, 51, also of Noble, struck each other head on when, for an unknown reason, the Ford Taurus traveled left of center.

At the time of the collision, the Nissan Sentra contained one passenger who has been identified as Amy Stevens, 51, of Noble.

As a result of the collision, all three people were transported by EMSStat to Norman Regional Hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the collision. After receiving emergency treatment, Tommy Stevens was later released. At this time Wolfinbarger and Amy Stevens remain hospitalized in critical condition at undisclosed facilities.

State Highway 9 was closed for approximately two hours while the scene was investigated and cleared. The collision remains under investigation by the Norman/OU Police Collision Investigation Reconstruction Team.
