IA)—An Enid woman and a Ringwood man were injured in an ATV crash early this morning west of Ringwood in Major County. 30 year-old Johann Joseph Stoekel was transported by private vehicle to Integris Bass, then flown by medi flight to St. Anthony’s in Oklahoma City where he was admitted in stable condition with head and arm injuries. His passenger, 22 year-old Edith Renteria was transported to Integris Bass where she was treated and released. Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials said Stoekel was driving an ATV on a sandy trail on private property about 5 miles west of Ringwood around 3:30 this morning when he lost control. The ATV overturned, and Stoekel and Renteria, who were not wearing helmets, were both ejected an unknown distance.
