Enid, OK (June 14, 2019) – On June 6th, the Enid Police Department responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident in the 100 block of West Garriott Road at 3:39 p.m.
Reports from the incident show that 27-year-old Leenes N. Latak was traveling along the roadway in a Kia Sorento when his vehicle collided with a United Rental tractor trailer.
Two children inside the vehicle suffered serious injuries in the collision and were sent to St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center for treatment.
An investigation of the incident found that Latak was sitting in the driver seat, holding a 3-year-old child at the time of the incident. A 2-year-old child was unrestrained in the vehicle and suffered a laceration to his forehead.
Further investigations of the crash found that Latak was under the influence while driving. Latak has since been charged with DUI resulting in great bodily injury and two counts of child endangerment by driving under the influence.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the children injured in this collision.
