Woman Dies After Oklahoma City Pedestrian Accident

A woman died Tuesday after a Oklahoma City pedestrian accident, police said.

According to officials with the Oklahoma City Police Department, 50 year-old Cheryl Bingham was struck by a car shortly before 10:30 a.m. Friday while crossing Northeast 23 just east of Martin Luther King Avenue. She was seriously injured in the crash and trasnported by ambulance to an area hospital for treatment.

Bingham was pronounced dead Tuesday morning, Oklahoma City Police Department Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow said.

Police say 39 year-old Tony Leroy Hankins was arrested on a complaint of leaving the scene of an injury accident. Police say a woman who saw the accident followed Hankins’ vehicle and gave directions to police.

It is not known if the complaints against Hankins have been amended in light of Bingham’s death.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family and friends during this difficult time.
