A Cushing man is in stable condition after being run over by his own vehicle.
Bernard Everett Hawkwing, 52, was pushing his 1999 Ford Econoline van downhill on the eastbound shoulder of Oklahoma 33 one mile east of Ripley City at 6:43 a.m. Saturday when it began to gain speed, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
As the van gained speed, Hawkwing attempted to enter the vehicle when he got caught underneath and was run over by the left rear tires, troopers said.
The vehicle continued to cross the roadway and went through a fence on the westbound side of the road.
Hawkwing was taken to Cushing Regional Hospital with arm, leg and internal injuries.
