Beggs man dies 8 days after truck is hit by wrong-way driver

The Associated Press - December 27, 2016 10:06 am

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a Beggs man has died more than a week after his pickup truck was hit by a wrong-way driver on Interstate 244 in Tulsa.
The highway patrol says 40-year-old John Holata died Sunday at a Tulsa hospital following the Dec. 17 crash. A preliminary report says Holata’s truck was struck by an SUV that was driving the wrong direction on the interstate, then Holata’s truck collided with a third vehicle. The driver of the SUV was hurt, as was a passenger in Holata’s truck and the driver in the third vehicle.
It wasn’t immediately clear Monday whether any criminal charges would be filed against the wrong-way driver, but the highway patrol’s preliminary report said investigators believe she was driving under the influence.
