A Madill man was injured Tuesday morning when speed and icy roads combined to send his pickup into the path of two semi-trucks on U.S. Highway 377 three miles south of Fittstown.


According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol the crash occurred about 10:10 a.m. when Delbert Weller, 69, lost control of his northbound 1996 GMC pickup. The truck slid into the southbound lane, where it was hit by a 2008 Mack truck driven by Kenneth Choate, 47, of Ada.


Franklin Pursiville, 48, of Ada, who was behind the wheel of an approaching southbound 1994 International truck, tried to avoid the crash, but the patrol said the truck overturned and came to rest on the pickup.


Neither Choate nor Pursiville were injured.


Weller was taken by ambulance to Valley View Hospital in Ada and later transferred to Integris Hospital in Oklahoma City. The patrol said Weller was listed in serious condition with multiple injuries.


All three drivers were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.


There were no passengers in any of the trucks.


Unsafe speed for road conditions was listed as the cause of the pileup.
