Last updated on Friday, June 15, 2012

(BEDFORD) - One person was injured after a crash on East Powerline Road Thursday night.

According to a Lawrence County Police report, Joshua Brittain, 31, of Norman, was traveling west on East Powerline Road and was talking to his wife, when his 2004 Buick Raner drifted over the center line.

The car hit a 2002 Chevrolet truck driven by 22-year-old Alex Conn.

Conn told police he tried to avoid the collision by swerving off the south side of the road.

Joshua and Conn were not injured in the crash. But Joshua's daughter Maddison Brittain complained of abdominal pain.
