Two Die, Three Injured, in NW Oklahoma City Crash

19-Aug-2012

A Colorado man has been arrested on two allegations of second-degree murder after his pickup collided with an SUV occupied by two Oklahoma residents; sadly both Oklahomans were killed on impact. Oddly enough, the three injured individuals included the driver of the pickup and his two passengers.

According to Oklahoma City Police, the driver of the pickup was traveling at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour when his vehicle collided with the SUV as the SUV exited a 7-Eleven parking lot. The high speed at which the pickup was traveling no doubt contributed to the carnage which resulted upon impact. To make matters worse, the driver of the pickup is also being charged with leaving the scene of a collision involving death, driving with a revoked license, and reckless driving.

Even though the driver of the pickup was a resident of Colorado, he will be prosecuted in Oklahoma, as Oklahoma is the state in which the criminal allegations occurred. The State of Oklahoma will be able to charge the Colorado man with second-degree murder by alleging that the deaths occurred during the commission of an act imminently dangerous to another person and evincing a depraved mind, regardless of human life, although committed without any premeditated desire to actually end the lives of either individual. Second-degree murder is a form of Oklahoma homicide.
