OHP: Speeding Led To Wagoner County Crash That Hurt 4 Children

Posted: Updated:

Editor's note: On January 31, 2018, the OHP released a new version of its report on this crash. The new version says drugs were NOT a factor in the crash. The OHP says the first version of the report had a typo. News On 6 updated the story and headline to reflect the change.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol blames speeding for a crash in Wagoner County that hurt the driver and all four children riding with him.

Troopers said the crash happened just before 10:45 p.m. on Highway 104 southwest of Redbird.

They say Cody Shepherd, 31, of Haskell was driving the 2002 Chevy pickup and had four children -- girls ages 5, 7, 9 and 10 -- in the truck with him. All five people were hurt, the OHP said. The seven-year-old was admitted in critical condition due to a head injury, the trooper said.

The OHP report states Shepherd was southbound when he failed to negotiate a curve, ran off the highway and hit an embankment. The truck came to a stop in a pasture.  

Troopers said no one in the truck was wearing a seat belt or using a child restraint or safety seat. 

The OHP says the investigation continues.
