(KFOR) – A hopeful update after the tragic accident involving teen drinking over the Memorial Day weekend. Authorities were called to the Oak Tree neighborhood around 11:45 p.m. on Saturday, May 27.

“There was a group of juveniles driving in the neighborhood. The victim had stuck her head out of the window to throw up and her head impacted with a large heavy metal mailbox,” said Emily Ward, spokesperson for the Edmond Police Department. “The juveniles stopped on the scene and gave first aid but they ultimately drove to her home where they called 911.”

The 17-year-old driver told police she had “an apple beer” at a friend’s house 45 minutes before getting behind the wheel. CONTINUE
