MEAD – One man was taken from the site of a two-vehicle collision in stable condition by AirEvac on Saturday afternoon near Mead, according to a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

Dakota Glass, 70, of Mead was traveling westbound on U.S. Highway 70 in a 2001 Nissan car when he attempted to exit onto Streetman Road and struck head-on the 2012 Nissan four-door driven by Ransom Giesler, 26, of Colbert.

Both vehicles exited to the south of the roadway.

Glass was transported by AirEvac to Plano Medical Center in Plano, Texas, where he was admitted in stable condition with trunk, arm and leg injuries. Giesler refused treatment.

The cause of the accident was an unsafe lane change by Glass and there was an odor of alcohol, according to the report.

Giesler was wearing his seatbelt.
