Woman facing first-degree manslaughter; one still in hospital

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Norman police said one of the women was Gordon’s mother. The three were traveling in a Ford Explorer.

Three others also were injured in the three-vehicle wreck and were transported to Norman Regional Hospital by EMSStat, where they were treated for their injuries and released.

Those individuals included Christopher and Susan Mullendore, both 43, and Leanna Mullendore, 13, all of Harrah. They were traveling in a Dodge Ram pickup.

The collision occurred just before 3 p.m. Monday on State Highway 9, east of 168th Avenue Southeast.

Wenthold was traveling eastbound on Highway 9 when her Ford Escape traveled left of center into the westbound lane of traffic toward a westbound SUV, the affidavit said.

The SUV then swerved and the driver lost control and entered the eastbound lane of traffic. At that point, the SUV collided with an eastbound pickup that was traveling behind Wenthold.

Highway 9 was closed for about five hours while the scene was investigated and cleared.

The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office and the Oklahoma Department of Transportation also responded to the scene to assist with patient care, traffic control and repairing the road surface.

The collision remains under investigation by the Norman and University of Oklahoma Police Collision Investigation Reconstruction Team.
