Injury Accident Reported By OHP Wednesday (Near QuikTrip)
U#1 (Pontiac) driver: Carithers, Nicholas A. 20 yr old from Dewey, Ok.

U#2 (pickup) David W. Freeman. 17 year old from Collinsville, Ok.

LT George W. Brown #172 -- OHP Public Affairs (10/4/2011 6:49 pm)

I drove up on this collision just moments ago!

Another injury crash occurred minutes ago here in front of the QT on Hwy 20
at US Hwy 75.

At approx 6:30 PM, a Pontiac 4-dr was driving north out of the QT parking
lot and was attempting to turn left, (west) in front of an east bound
pickup truck.

The driver, (no name released at this time) of the Pontiac received minor
injuries and was taken to a Tulsa area Hospital by Collinsville EMS.

The driver of the pickup truck was not injured. OHP Troopers are working
the scene and the driver of the Pontiac will likely be cited for failing to
yield from a stop sign.

"This marks several injury and non injury collisions at this intersection
since the QT opened. We will most likely speak with traffic engineers and
explore the possibility of traffic lights being installed at this
location". -LT George Brown OHP Spokesperson.

Humming Bird/Insect?
I finally got a good photo of what I had assumed was a small hummingbird that has been a frequent visitor in my backyard this summer. It's now clear that it's not a bird, but some type of insect instead. The wings are constantly flapping at high speed like a humming bird but now that I have a still view it has more butterfly like features. Anyone have a name for this creature? -- Ted Wright (

That's a hummingbird moth. We have quite a few visiting our flowers.
