Manslaughter charges filed

3 felony counts against Patricia McLoed of Blanchard


In the wake of the December 2 triple fatality accident west of Purcell, the driver of the vehicle that passed in a no passing zone is facing criminal charges.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said Patricia McLoed, 34 of Blanchard, was driving a 2008 Ford F150 and was attempting to pass two vehicles in a no passing zone.

According to an affidavit filed by Assistant District Attorney Lesley Marsh, McLoed admitted to using THC infused vodka prior to the collision.

She has been charged by Marsh with three felony counts of manslaughter in connection with the deaths of Kimberly Hartline, 39, of Dibble, Madysun Faber, 18, of Dibble and a 15-year-old male. His name was withheld due to his age, Troopers said.

Troopers said when the vehicles met they both swerved to the south side of the highway and hit head-on.

The Nissan rotated around back into the roadway and struck the rear fender of a 2022 GMC Sierra driven by Keith Frazier, 34, of Purcell. He was not injured, the OHP reported. Also, a two-year-old in the Hartline vehicle sustained minor injuries, Trooper Shayne Ballard reported.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of McLoed.
