Two children were injured Friday in a wreck about 7:15 a.m. at 46th Street and Okmulgee Avenue. A Suburban, driven by Elijah Chandler Jr., was traveling west on Okmulgee Avenue. A Dodge Caravan, driven by Christopher Zamen, was traveling south off of 46th Street, and pulled out, clipped the Suburban and caused it to roll, said Muskogee Police Officer Lincoln Anderson. A 9-year-old and a 7-year-old in Chandler’s Suburban were ejected, Anderson said. There were no car seats installed in the Suburban, and it appears the children may not have been wearing seat belts, he said. The children were later treated and released at EASTAR Health System, and Zamen was cited for failure to yield, Anderson said.
