By Maj. S. Lee Sargent 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team

Soldiers from the 45th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, Oklahoma Army National Guard, assisted numerous individuals who were injured in a multiple vehicle accident on Westbound Interstate 40 near State Highway 377, April 25, 2021.
Six Soldiers from the 545th Brigade Engineer Battalion and one Soldier from the 1st Battalion, 179th Infantry Regiment, were returning to Norman, Oklahoma, after completing several days of training at Fort Chaffee, Arkansas, when they came upon the accident scene.
The Oklahoma Guardsmen immediately began to assess the injured and render critical aid until first responders arrived. The Soldiers continued supporting first responders until the scene was cleared.
Col. Colby Wyatt, commander of the 45th IBCT, was immediately informed that Soldiers under his command were rendering aid at the scene of the accident.
“It gives me comfort knowing that our Soldiers have the training, knowledge, and care to do what they can in rendering aid to their fellow Oklahomans in a time of need,” Wyatt said.
