OKLAHOMA CITY —
“It’s a virtual parking lot down there,” said OHP Lt. Scott Hampton. “Every one of our truck stops are full.”
“We are absolutely discouraging travel,” Hampton said. “I would tell anyone who plans to get out to be prepared to possibly spend 8 to 10 hours in their vehicle.”
The death of a 5-year-old boy in an auto accident on an icy road in Muskogee has been blamed on the weather and Oklahoma City police have said that the frigid conditions are believed to be responsible for death of a man whose body was found beneath an overpass where transients are known to congregate.
