Slaughterville teen faces charges after allegedly ramming ex-girlfriend’s vehicle

(Continued)

NORMAN —

The 19-year-old told deputies he thought Berry had been upset that the 21-year-old female, Berry’s ex-girlfriend, was with him.

The two were transported to the Norman Regional Hospital to be treated.

Two individuals who witnessed the collision told police that as they were traveling eastbound on Cemetery Road, they saw two vehicles behind them. The witness who was driving told deputies the white truck was driving erratically and it first appeared he was going to pass the lead vehicle, the black car, but instead swerved at the black car, the affidavit states.

The black car then swerved to avoid a collision, the white truck went back into the opposite lane and then swerved at the black car a second time, colliding with the black car in the rear door area. The collision caused the white car to begin sliding sideways and the black car slid until it reached the edge of the roadway where it rolled two or three times before coming to a rest in the ditch, the witness said.

The other witness, who was a passenger, said she saw the black car flipping and saw a person get ejected from the vehicle. The witnesses then stopped, called 911 and checked on everyone. She advised the driver of the white truck was in an upright position and had no visible injuries, the affidavit states.

Another witness who heard the crash came to the site and said he asked the male who had been ejected what had happened. The male told him the guy in the white truck “ran into them on purpose and ran them off the road.”

Berry was read his Miranda warning, placed under arrest and transported to Cleveland County jail juvenile holding as a youthful offender.
