The McClain County District Attorney’s office has filed a felony charge of manslaughter in the first degree against an Oklahoma City man in connection with a fatality collision on I-35 near mile marker 98 December 22.
Trooper Mathew Conway said a 2015 Ford F150 driven by Collrett Andrea Boyd, 35, caused a five-vehicle pile up on I-35 near mile marker 98 that resulted in the death of Chandra Crutsinger, 24, of Edmond.
The OHP reported the Boyd vehicle was northbound weaving in and out of traffic.
Investigators said the Ford struck another northbound vehicle and went off the roadway crossing over the cable barrier and crashing into the other southbound vehicles, including the 2015 Acura MDX driven by Crutsinger.
Conway said the Ford came to rest on top of the Acura, killing Crutsinger and injuring her two passengers, Amber Scholl, 27, and Ericka Scholl, 23, both of Edmond.
During the investigation at OU Medical Center the affidavit reported Trooper Michael Wallace noticed Boyd’s eyes were red and watery.
The affidavit said Boyd admitted, “to smoking marijuana multiple times that day and had recently smoked just a couple of hours before in Davis.”
“Boyd also stated that he knew he was not supposed to be driving because his Driver’s License was suspended for possession of THC but he needed to help a friend move to Texas,” the affidavit said.
Troopers found multiple containers of marijuana located throughout the vehicle along with the THC vape pens.
A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Boyd, the DA’s office said.
