OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Court records indicate a 30-year-old Oklahoma man arrested following a deadly alcohol-related collision in Canadian County on New Year’s Eve has pleaded guilty four times previously to driving under the influence of alcohol.
Craig Maker of Edmond was arrested following a two-vehicle collision on the Kilpatrick Turnpike in Canadian County in which 37-year-old Amanda Carson of Yukon was killed. The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says three people in Carson’s vehicle were injured, two critically.
Online court records indicate Maker has pleaded guilty to DUI charges three times in Oklahoma County and once in Logan County. He received a 10-year deferred sentence when he pleaded guilty to DUI most recently, in May 2016, in Oklahoma County. He also received deferred sentences when he pleaded guilty to the other DUI charges in 2011.
