Snow and slush appear to be to blame for a one vehicle accident in Washita County Sunday afternoon.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the accident occurred approximately at 2:35 Sunday afternoon on a county road two miles east and two and a half miles south of Colony.

OHP says the 2003 Nissan Morano driven by 37-year-old Kayla Joy Hartford of Weatherford was southbound on county road 2440 when while her cruise control was set, lost control of the vehicle on a snow covered bridge. OHP says the vehicle departed the road to the right, then rolled one and a quarter times before coming to rest on its driver side doors.

Hartford was transported by Lifeguard EMS to Weatherford Regional Hospital where she was admitted in stable condition with a head injury.

Two passengers, 18-year-old Matias Luera Jr. and a 14-year-old male, were not injured in the mishap.

OHP says seatbelts were in use by all occupants during the crash.
