A two-vehicle fatality collision resulted in a first degree manslaughter arrest.
Trooper Dustin Thornton of Oklahoma Highway Patrol states he was assigned to work a traffic homicide on Saturday on Highway 66 at 428 Road.
Thornton’s reports show that Derrick Lee Carter was northbound on 428 Road, driving a Ford Ranger, and failed to yield from a stop sign to a westbound traveling motorcycle.
Thornton documents that Carter, 34, struck the oncoming Harley Davidson motorcycle, the driver of which was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers later performed sobriety tests on Carter and determined he was “under the influence of a central nervous system stimulant.”
Trooper Thornton additionally notes that Carter was operating his vehicle without a valid driver’s license and that he had never been issued a driver’s license.
Carter was arrested on allegations of first degree manslaughter, driving under the influence of drugs, failure to yield from a stop sign and operating a vehicle without a license.
