A drunk driver who caused a deadly crash on the Broken Arrow Expressway is sentenced to life in prison. John Freeman, 26, was going the wrong way and slammed head on into another car back in March.

The driver in the other vehicle, 64-year-old O.Z. Walker Jr., was killed.

An off-duty police detective spotted Freeman, and tried to stop him before the crash, but couldn't.

Freeman's blood alcohol level was almost three times the legal limit.
