Accident sends 1 person to hospital
A two-vehicle collision on Rogers Lane sent one person to the hospital shortly before 1 p.m. Saturday.
Lawton Police Sgt. Tim Jenkins, public information officer, said a Ford pickup was headed westbound on Rogers Lane near Northwest 26th Street when a mattress flew off its back end.
The driver of the truck was attempting to move from the right lane to the left lane in order to do a U-turn and retrieve the mattress, but as the driver was changing lanes, a Hyundai car rear-ended the truck, Jenkins said.
Jenkins said one person was taken to a local hospital and treated for minor lacerations.
