OOLOGAH, Okla. (AP) – The driver of a car that went off a cliff near Oologah Dam, killing a 32-year-old woman and an 11-year-old boy, has been arrested.

According to police, a 34-year-old Collinsville man was arrested Tuesday on two complaints of first-degree manslaughter and causing an injury accident while driving under the influence.

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol report says the driver and a 6-year-old boy were wearing seat belts when he missed a curve Saturday, and the vehicle went off of a cliff. According to the report, Angela Brown and Aden Williams were not wearing seat belts and were ejected from the vehicle. Brown died at the scene and the 11-year-old boy died later at a hospital.

The 6-year-old boy was transported to the hospital in stable condition.
