SEILING, Okla. — Alcohol is listed as the cause of a Sunday night rollover injury accident involving a Seiling man and two children, according to an Oklahoma Highway Patrol report.
Brandon Jay Benton, 44, was driving a 2003 GMC Yukon north on U.S. 60 a half mile north of the Major/Dewey county line, just north of Seiling, when the vehicle veered off the road and rolled over on its side, coming to rest in a field at 10:13 p.m., according to the report.
Benton refused treatment at the scene, but his passengers, 8- and 9-year-olds, also of Seiling, were transported by EMS to Seiling Hospital for observation of head injuries. Both were listed in stable condition.
The OHP release states the driver's ability was impaired and lists cause of collision as "DUI alcohol." Seat belts were installed in the vehicle but none were in use at the time of the accident, according to the release.
