A Cowley County native was hospitalized over the weekend as a result of injuries sustained in an ATV accident in Oklahoma.
25-year-old Chrissy Terronez required exploratory surgery after arriving at a Wichita hospital. Terronez currently lives in Clearwater, however she retains close ties to family in Winfield.
A family member said Terronez was going over a hill at the sand dunes of Little Sahara State Park in Waynoka, Okla. when the accident occurred. She struck a cable while riding a four-wheeler and sustained considerable damage to her liver, pancreas and spleen.
She also has endured a substantial amount of internal bleeding. The accident occurred late Friday night or early Saturday morning.
