Ada, OK (June 1, 2019) – According to police, an alleged intoxicated driver crashed into a home last Sunday, May 27th, and subsequently caused serious injuries to a young teenage boy. The accident took place in the 300 block of SE County Road at an unspecified time.
Authorities stated that 37-year-old Derek Scott Frazier, of Ada, was driving an SUV in the aforementioned location when he crashed through two walls of a family home. The impact of the collision destroyed a bedroom as the 14-year-old boy was thrown across the room and pinned inside a closet.
Emergency crews were quickly at the scene, where the victim was then airlifted to the University of Oklahoma Medical Center and treated for two cracked vertebrae, as well as other injuries. Police stated that Frazier struck the home at a very high rate of speed and he was ultimately arrested for driving while intoxicated.
We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the injured teen as we maintain our highest hopes for his full recovery.
