The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has released the name of a woman killed in a triple-fatality wreck on U.S. Highway 75 early Saturday morning. Amanda Mae Rose, 33, was riding on the back of a motorcycle that was hit by a wrong-way driver.
Her name had been withheld until family could be notified.
The wrong-way driver, 21-year-old Christian Jonathan Loiler, was arrested for three counts of first-degree manslaughter and driving under the influence, among other complaints.
Investigators said Loiler, of Collinsville, was driving a Honda Civic southbound in the northbound lanes of U.S. 75 near 96th Street North. The car crashed head on into Brandon Dale Allen and a Rose on a motorcycle, according to authorities. Allen and Rose were driving home from work when the crash took place.
Zachary Cole Fuller, of Bartlesville, and Misty Dawn (Thirion) Morgan, of Collinsville, were passengers in Loiler's car. Morgan was killed, and Fuller was critically injured.
Troopers say Loiler had an obvious odor of alcohol on his breath and person. Loiler claimed Fuller was driving, but the evidence shows he was behind the wheel, an arrest report states.
He's being held at the Tulsa County jail on a $163,300 bond.
