ENID, Okla. — Three men were injured early Monday morning southwest of Drummond, two miles west of Oklahoma 132 on Lucien Road.

The first man was injured when the cement truck he was driving rolled, according to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol report. The other two were injured when their vehicle struck the cement truck as it lay in the roadway.

Donald Paul Blose III, 35, of Enid, was on Lucien Road about 5:55 a.m. when he left the roadway to the right, overcorrected and swerved back onto the roadway. The 2008 Sterling cement truck then crossed the center line and overcorrected again, entered a broadside skid and overturned.

Cale Dalton Giager, 21, of Fairview, was driving a 2006 Ford pickup “too fast for foggy conditions” and struck the cement truck, according to the report.

Blose suffered internal body injuries and was taken by ambulance to Integris Bass Baptist Health Center and was admitted in stable condition.

Giager was taken by private vehicle to Bass for internal injuries and was admitted in stable condition. Giager’s passenger, 36-year-old Anthony Dale Foster, of Longdale, was taken by ambulance to Bass and admitted in stable condition with a leg injury.

The cause of the collision is listed as “unsafe speed — fog.” Blose was wearing his seat belt. Giager was wearing his seat belt, but Foster was not.
