Wild animal in the road leads to fatal multi-vehicle crash

GARVIN COUNTY, OK – An Elmore City woman was killed following a multi-vehicle collision caused by a deer in the roadway early Tuesday morning.

According to KTEN, the accident took place at about 6:25 a.m. along State Highway 29 just east of I-35.

Investigators with the OHP say the Ford pickup truck driven by Brendan Kelam, 25, struck a deer in the roadway, forcing his vehicle into oncoming traffic where it struck a Cadillac SUV. Both vehicles skidded off the roadway where the Cadillac collided with a barbed-wire fence.

The driver in the Cadillac, 48-year-old Amber Cody, was pronounced dead at the scene. Kelam refused transportation to the hospital.
