CUSTER COUNTY, Okla. - An Elk City man was injured after a crash on a county road in Custer County and troopers say alcohol was to blame.
According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, a pickup truck driven by 46-year-old Harry Hayes left the roadway, struck a metal gate, re-crossed the road, struck a fence and went into a ditch.
Troopers say Hayes tried to get up several times, falling back into the ditch and breaking his leg "due to driver's intoxicated state."
Hayes was taken to the hospital with head and leg injuries.
His passenger was uninjured.
