The 54-year-old man was charged with manslaughter after his pickup truck crossed the center line of State Highway 9 and struck an oncoming vehicle.

On Tuesday we wrote about the witness testimony that was heard in the trial of a man who is charged with manslaughter after a 2012 accident caused the death of an Oklahoma City woman.

More than a year ago, multiple people called 911 to report an erratic driver. One caller told a dispatcher that the man kept drifting over the center line of the road. Although both callers tried to prevent an accident by calling authorities, their efforts were fruitless. While the second caller was on the phone with emergency dispatchers, she witnessed the erratic 54-year-old driver once again cross the centerline and crash head-on into another vehicle. She thought he was intoxicated.
