SEQUOYAH COUNTY (KFSM) — A wreck in Sequoyah County sends one person in a medical helicopter to a hospital in Tulsa.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol said the 82-year-old woman was involved in a wreck with another vehicle in the southbound lane of U.S. Highway 59, three miles north of Sallisaw Tuesday night (Oct. 25).
