CB)--A 41 year old Enid woman was injured Sunday in a single-vehicle accident in Kingfisher County. Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials have not released the woman’s name pending notification of next of kin. According to the report, just before 5:00 Sunday afternoon, the woman was being pursued by a Kingfisher County deputy on a county road southeast of Dover when she lost control. The 2005 Buick Enclave she was driving went airborne, hit a tree, and came to rest in the roadway.  She was extricated by the Kingfisher Fire Department, then flown by AirEvac to OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where she was admitted in critical condition for arm, leg, and internal injuries.
