Washita County, OK (January 8, 2023) – An 18-year-old was left with severe injuries following a traffic accident that took place near Burns Flat on Tuesday afternoon. On January 4, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a crash on Oklahoma Highway 44.
According to law enforcement, a 2013 Mack truck, which was driven by 55-year-old Mark Bookout, failed to stop at the intersection of County Road 1130 and Oklahoma Highway 44. As a result, the vehicle struck a 2000 Ford Fusion, which was driven by 18-year-old Kaylee Dudgeon.

We hope Mark Bookout and Kaylene Dudgeon recover quickly following this accident.
Truck Wrecks in Oklahoma
Being involved in a truck crash can change your life forever. Unfortunately, truck crashes are the cause of thousands of accidents each year.
When victims are involved in truck accidents, they often have to go through significant medical treatment, which can be immediate and long-term. We see many truck crash victims left with life-changing injuries, such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries that result in memory and balance issues.
- Spinal cord injuries that result in paraplegia or quadriplegia.
- Internal organ injuries that require emergency surgery.
- Broken bones that can lead to the loss of my limbs.
Serious injuries can have a devastating impact on your life. Victims often have to go through months of treatment, such as therapy and rehab. In addition, they often require medications and some medical devices. These all come at a significant cost.
If you were harmed in a truck crash due to another driver’s negligence, you may be able to file a lawsuit for damages against the responsible driver. An Oklahoma truck accident lawyer can help you navigate the complex legal process and fight for fair compensation.
