The Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s Office has determined that a 21-year-old Wilburton, Oklahoma, woman died of injuries from a traffic collision while she was in the Latimer County Jail on Dec. 24, 2017.

Thasha Prindle, 21, was the driver of a 2002 Nissan Altima which was southbound on Parr Avenue in Wilburton just after 6 a.m. on Dec. 23. Her vehicle swerved left and departed the roadway, striking a house.

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported Prindle was driving under the influence of alcohol when the accident occurred.

She was transported by Pafford EMS to the Latimer County General  Hospital in Wilburton, where she was medically cleared, then transported by a Highway Patrol Trooper to the Latimer County Jail. She died at an unknown time on Dec. 24 while in a jail cell.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the death.
