A Mustang woman is in critical condition after being trapped in her vehicle following a hit-and-run accident, an OU Medical Center spokesman said Monday.

Jennifer Asher, 34, was driving Thursday on State Highway 66 in northwest Oklahoma City when she and another driver collided.

The other driver fled the scene on foot, according to the police report.

Police who searched the car identified the driver as Jonathan David Bishop, 39. They found a 12 gauge shotgun partially covered by a blanket in the backseat, according to the report.

Officers found Bishop nearby with blood around his mouth, nose and on his knees. His injuries were consistent with the severity of the collision, the report said. He was unsteady on his feet and had slurred speech with watery eyes, police said.

After he was put in a police car, Bishop began yelling at people around the car and asked someone to call his mother. He was yelling, “You told the cops where I was!” the report states.

Bishop was taken to Deaconess Hospital for a blood test and treatment. He became aggressive and refused to have his blood drawn, so he was handcuffed to the bed, police said.

After he refused medical treatment, he was taken to the Oklahoma County jail and was released Friday, jail officials said.
