DEWEY COUNTY, Oklahoma -- Two drivers racing each other while under the influence of alcohol caused an injury wreck in Dewey County, according to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

 The collision took place at about 5:10 p.m. on State Highway 34 just south of Camargo in Dewey County.

Troopers say 45-year-old Terry Smith of Leedy was racing 40-year-old Rodney Rohde of Camargo when the two vehicles collided. Smith's 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix left the roadway to the left in a broad slide while Rohde's 2000 Volkswagen Beetle left the roadway to the right.

Smith was treated and released for his injuries at an Elk City hospital. His passenger, 59-year-old Dena Smith of Camargo was treated and released for a head injury.

Both drivers were impaired by drinking, according to Trooper Paul Staggs.

No one was wearing a seat belt, the trooper's report states.
