Cops: Inmates escape from van stopped at hospital in Weatherford Published: September 24, 2013

WEATHERFORD, Okla. (AP) — Eight inmates being transported by a private prison company escaped in their transport van in western Oklahoma on Tuesday when their guards stopped to take at least one inmate into a hospital, a police chief said.

Two prisoners were at large following the Tuesday afternoon escape at Weatherford. Six were rounded up shortly after police put out a call asking for help. A shotgun aboard the van was also recovered.

The inmates were from jails in the western and northern United States and were being transported among agencies in the same regions of the country.
