MUSKOGEE (AP) — The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a toll booth attendant on the Muskogee Turnpike is hospitalized after a van crashed into the booth south of Muskogee.

The OHP says 59-year-old Gail Estep of Oktaha was taken to a Tulsa hospital in stable condition following the crash about 12:15 a.m. Thursday. An OHP report says the van was southbound on the turnpike at a high rate of speed when it crashed into the toll booth.

The report says the driver of the van was uncooperative and refused to provide correct identification and that investigators are trying to verify his identity. The driver was also taken to a Tulsa hospital in stable condition.
