An 18 year old Ponca City man was injured in a one car accident on South Avenue early Monday afternoon.  Darrel Arita was driving a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe on South Ave, 3/10 of a mile east of U Street, when he lost control and went into a broadside for about 165 feet and rolling 2 times after departing the roadway.

Arita, who was ejected from the vehicle, was transported by Ponca City EMS to Ponca Alliance Health Hospital and admitted in stable condition with arm and leg injuries.  The report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol reports that Arita may have been driving at an unsafe speed and was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.
