Driver Flees Following Head-On Collision
Posted on behalf of Edwards Law Firm on Jul 17, 2013 in Auto Accidents
An Oklahoma City woman was driving her Ford Mustang home last Thursday night when a pickup truck collided with her vehicle. A nearby off-duty EMT heard the accident and raced to the scene where he immediately performed emergency first aid to the woman.
While the off-duty EMT was performing emergency first aid he spotted the other driver standing nearby covered in blood. Unfortunately, when the police arrived to the scene the other driver had disappeared from where he was standing.
Police officers were able to get information about the man driving the pickup truck and tracked him to a friends house where he was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.
The woman driving the vehicle was taken to OU Medical Center in critical condition. She is suffering from a broken jaw, facial fractures, and massive internal damages. Further reports indicate that the woman will heal from these injuries and should be able to walk again.
