OHP: Distracted Driving Led To Infant's Death In LeFlore County Crash
LEFLORE COUNTY, Oklahoma - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a 3-month-old Cameron boy died in an Arkansas hospital early Friday following a crash in LeFlore County Thursday evening.
Their report states the cause of the crash on Highway 112, south of Pocola, was "inattentive driving due to a distraction."
Troopers say just before 7 p.m., a 2009 Chevy Malibu driven by Heather Schultz of Cameron had stopped to make a left turn when a southbound 2004 Chevy pickup driven by James Johnson of Arkoma struck the rear of Schultz's car.
Heather and a passenger, Daniel Schultz, were treated and released from a Fort Smith hospital. The infant was flown to a Little Rock hospital, where he later died.
The OHP says Johnson was not injured in the crash.
