Rogers County, OK (June 12, 2019) – On June 10th, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on the westbound side of Highway 412.
According to reports, 48-year-old Scotty Dilbeck was riding along the roadway, in a 2015 Volkswagen GTI, when he was struck by a motor vehicle, driven by 32-year-old Bradley Wofford, near 4180 Road around 6:30 p.m.
Dilbeck sustained fatal injuries in the collision and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Law enforcement officers noticed Wofford was acting suspicious at the scene of the incident, so they transported him to an area hospital to provide a blood sample.
The driver of the responsible vehicle, Bradley Wofford, was arrested for an outstanding warrant for aggravated driving under the influence and a previous DUI arrest. Furthermore, he was in possession of methamphetamine at the time of his arrest.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of Scotty Dilbeck at this time.
