One man dead; another faces manslaughter complaint in Oklahoma City crash
One man died and another man was critically injured and is facing a manslaughter complaint after an overnight crash in northwest Oklahoma City.
Marcus Wilson, 19, of Oklahoma City, was a passenger in a car that hit a tree about 11 p.m. Thursday, said police Master Sgt. Gary Knight.
Wilson was riding in a car driven by Glenn E. Relerford, 18, who was hospitalized and listed in critical condition today at OU Medical Center. He faces manslaughter, driving under the influence of alcohol and possession of marijuana complaints. Relerford also had a canceled driver's license, Knight said.
A police officer in a patrol car reported seeing a car failing to stop at a stop sign at NW 31 and Western Avenue and then running a driver off the street at NW 29 and Shartel Avenue. The officer turned to pursue the car and saw the car had hit a tree at NW 25 and Douglas Avenue, Knight said.
