Scattered showers and storms could become strong to severe this afternoon into the evening. Primary threats are large hail and heavy rainfall causing flooding in poor drainage areas. Damaging winds are included as well and an isolated tornado possibility is very low but not eliminated.
PONTOTOC COUNTY, OK -- An officer was involved in a Pontotoc County accident Thursday morning.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says 17-year-old Kevin Hickman was driving a truck east on State Highway 3 just north of State Highway 19, when he accelerated to change lanes and hydroplaned.
He slid into the other side of the highway and Chickasaw Nation Lighthorse police officer Michael Holloway crashed into the truck.
EMS took Holloway to the Chickasaw Nation Medical Center as a precaution but he wasn't injured.
Hickman and his two passengers were treated for minor injuries and released.
