ENID, Okla. — A 35-year-old Enid man was injured early Tuesday morning in Major County when he lost control of his vehicle because of snowy conditions, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported.

Nathan Ezra Meier was transported by ambulance from the 5:45 a.m. collision on U.S. 60 about 120 feet east of the Oklahoma 8 junction, according to the report. He was taken to Integris Bass Baptist Health Center in Enid and admitted in stable condition with internal injuries.

A 2006 International semi, driven by Jeremy Asbury, 25, of Arkansas, was pulled over and stationary in the westbound shoulder of U.S. 60. As Meier was approaching westbound he tapped his brakes to reduce speed, lost control and entered a broadslide before striking the semi. Asbury was not injured.

Seat belts were in use in both vehicles, according to the patrol. The cause of the collision is listed as “unsafe speed for snow on roadway.”
