A driver failed to stop in the construction zone on Highway 54 a half-mile west of Tyrone on Thursday afternoon, causing a chain reaction accident involving four vehicles and closing the highway for about 45 minutes. According to a report in the Guymon Daily Herald, a 2000 Chevrolet pickup driven by Elizabeth Handy, 18, of Adams, failed to stop at a flagman in the construction zone on Highway 54. Handy's vehicle struck a 2004 Ford driven by Marlene Holley, 35, of Tyrone, which struck a 2005 Lincoln driven by Denise Ortiz, 18, of Adams, which struck a 2008 Peterbilt semi driven by Joe Guzman, 33, of Liberal, Kan.
