STILLWATER – The Stillwater Police Department has identified the driver of a 2012 GMC Sierra who was killed when his truck crashed into a house early Sunday morning.

Caleb Holt, 20, was pronounced dead at the scene after emergency crews responded to the residence at 606 S. Jefferson Street.  The porch collapsed on the truck after it crashed into the house.

According to a media release from Stillwater Police Department, “officers learned Caleb had allegedly consumed psychedelic mushrooms prior to the crash and had an adverse reaction to the mushrooms” during the preliminary investigation.

The death is still being investigated by SPD’s Accident Reconstruction Unit and Criminal Investigations Unit.

The release states that at about 1:20 a.m., a Stillwater Police officer was parked in front of Sprouts Farmers Market at 909 W. 6th Ave. when he saw the vehicle driving west on Sixth “at a high rate of speed.”

The officer began to pull out of the parking lot to stop the truck. The truck crossed the eastbound lanes of Sixth, jumped the curb and crashed into the house at 606 S. Jefferson Street.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact the Stillwater Police Department at (405) 372-4171.
