Awesome storm pictures

These photos were taken from North looking to the South of the storms that came through Grady County yesterday.

Looking closely at the photos looks like a funnel shape in the center of the clouds with possible dust rotation between the cloud and groud.

Could have been serious if a little more heating was involved.

Single vehicle accident

Shortly before noon today emergency responders and law enforcement were dispatched to a possible hit and run accident just West of Highway 92 on Highway 92/62/9 Eastbound side.

Upon investigation it was not a hit and run accident. The driver of the 2005 Chevrolet pickup that was involved was traveling Westbound towards Chickasha when a medical condition caused her to lose control of her vehicle.

The vehicle veered to the left crossing the center median, Eastbound lanes of traffic then out into a plowed field striking a pipe H-brace in the fence line. The vehicle was out of control for approximately 1500 feet before coming to a stop facing back Eastbound in the field.

The driver was checked but not transported by Chickasha EMS. The passengers were not injured.

Although the 2005 Chevrolet sustained significant damage it was operable and was removed from the scene by one of the passengers involved.
